10 painted Self-portraits MAK REMISSA

REMISSA MAK MAJOR WORKS EXPOSED ALL OVER PHOTO PHNOM PENH 2019 Tenth edition.

24 October -24 November 2019

Remissa MAK (Cambodia) exposing 10 painted Self-portraits at Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh , Cambodia

Since 1995, when Remissa graduated in painting at the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, Mak Remissa had hardly touched the brush. He had entirely devoted himself to photography.

"On the occasion of the tenth edition of Photo Phnom Penh he painted, with oil, a series of ten self-portraits of him as a photographer. Portraits in which he appears tired, exhausted by the weight of the cameras, by the repetition too, probably, by a form of boredom, obviously. But he has lost nothing of his painter’s know-how, and even if the palette is more extinct than that of his photographs, he still questions the meaning of figuration."
