The works of both Bor Hak and Hour Seyha seek to reveal the hidden meaning in the world around us. Seyha, as he explains, is a “child of forest” and grew up in the Forest of Athor in Oddar Meanchey. There he encountered the forest spirits and the ghosts of lives lost. In this series of paintings he makes visible apparitions that like their living counterparts seek safety from the threatening environment. In the sculptures of Bor Hak, he finds the hidden figure inside a piece of wood. Once revealed, it carries a message to the viewer to look beyond what we know, or what we think we know.
