(b. 1962)

Color comes from light and feelings. People live in a world of natural and man-made colors. All surfaces of color are acts of building up from the world with gestures, sounds, and forms that enter into our feelings and affect us, leaving a historical sediment that remains with us.

Angkor Color Reliefs are meant to be windows or openings in the wall which dissolve the confines of the room and open the viewer to distant vistas of the past of Khmer culture .

My Angkor Color Reliefs are layered silk which show the many facets of the fabric of Cambodia, producing a sparkling surface of mixed colors which echo and recall the heritage of Angkor. The act of building the wall of a temple is a metaphor for the continuous building of society The squares of my fabric repeat this process, just as each individual square stands as a single frame within the larger piece. My built color surface is thus based on the foundations of color necessary for human life. Without color, people "die".
