On the Pond, KOK
Medium: Chinese ink on drawing paper
Size: 64x49cm (with frame)
This piece is a furtive moment frozen in time and space. The herbs surrounding the pond is dancing around her, you can almost feel the wind as the model is tying her hair. Her shadow is pushing her forward from the background creating a three-dimensional effect.
ក្នុងរូបគំនូរនេះ យើងឃើញផ្លូវទឹកហូរតូចមួយ ហើយនារីម្នាក់ឈប់់នៅក្បែរនោះ ដើម្បីចងសក់ឡើងលើ។ យើងមើលឃើញស្រមោលនាងលេចចេញពីផ្ទៃខាងក្រោយ ធ្វើឲ្យវាដូចជារូបភាពពិតអឺចឹង។
About the artist:
Coming from the 80s and 90s punk rock scene, KOK is a musician and cartoonist trained at the Beaux-arts de Bordeaux and Les Arts Appliqués de la Gironde.
The all-digital nature of comics no longer allowed him to sell originals, so KOK returned to painting in 2006 and started with a “comic-style”, followed by a conceptual and modern approach to portraiture influenced by female issues and women’s rights.
He has exhibited in France and internationally, most recently at the Institut Francais of Bangkok, Thailand.
