I’m Here: Chath pierSath’s Solo Exhibition

I’m Here, Chath pierSath’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion, will be on display at Tally Beck Contemporary, 42 Rivington Street, New York, from June 26 to August 30, 2013. There will be an opening reception at the gallery from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on June 26.

Chath pierSath is a Cambodian artist, poet and humanitarian. He lost much of his family during the Khmer Rouge regime and was forced into a labor camp as a child before fleeing to Thailand in 1979. In 1981, he im­mi­grat­ed to the United States. PierSath works mainly with painting and collage and frequently experiments with media, often repurposing and re­cy­cling materials such as wooden slats and roof shingles. His paintings are deeply expressionistic and seem to attempt to reconcile haunting me­mor­ies of his childhood with his life in the United States and humanitarian work in Cambodia.
