Morn Chear works with an arts collective based in Siem Reap, where he specialises in Linocut block printing -- a technique rarely used in CambodiaSiem Reap (Cambodia) (AFP) - Whispered insults, social isolation, and lost opportunities -- Morn Chear is channelling the stigma he has endured since he lost both his hands a decade ago into artwork that highlights the hardships of Cambodia's disabled.
At 20, he was electrocuted in a construction accident and both his hands developed gangrene, pushing doctors to amputate them below the elbow.
"I was depressed, I did not know what I could do to earn money to feed my family," he tells AFP of the shock he felt when he woke up from surgery.
Ten years later, Chear has found his place at an arts collective based in Siem Reap, where he specialises in Linocut block printing -- a technique rarely used in Cambodia... READ FULL ARTICLE

Channy’s story follows a personal narrative of loss and recovery, in which knowledge and skills were both their strength and their demise... READ FULL STORY

Van Chhovorn mediates life through his art.
There are times one is drawn to an artist for reasons that seem difficult to articulate but rumble inside you like an ancient memory resurfacing. Such it is with my relationship with Van Chhovorn and his sculptures and paintings. Holding a wood carving of his in my hands emits feelings far beyond their sight, touch or smell. The wood quietly whispers to me of a life, a family, and a culture that I may witness but never quite know. To many, this will sound hackneyed but to me, it is the gift that art sometimes offers.
The art for art’s sake argument rings hollow with Van Chhovorn’s work. His recent wood sculptures speak loudly about reality and what is happening in his life and Cambodia. His pieces explore modern-day slavery, gender roles, disabilities, social issues, the environment, love, and cruelty – all from a very personal perspective... READ FULL ARTICLE
