Cambodia is home to many creative contributors and social enterprises supporting their communities whilst adding a creative touch to Cambodia. I had the pleasure of visiting and supporting Tribe Art Gallery, Rehash Trash and Epic Arts.
In Sophia Pauley's bright, textural paintings, she takes inspiration from the urban environment; with shapes and lines stemming from architectural environments associated with water. Combined with her experience of moving through these spaces, she creates a sense of flow in her work. With the use of bright tones and different textures and mediums, Sophia hopes to energise viewers by the sense of movement within the works.
Photographer and Fine Artist Nadia Attura reawakens the memories of her travels to tropical lands in her delicately layered art pieces. She tells a story of the now and the remembered, of dreams and reality, absorbing a place so that it feels like she is still there. Using a variety of mediums from photography, painting to collage, Nadia turns to art to breathe and reconnect.
