“Dé-Rives”, 2018, France

“«Dé-Rives» est une exposition monographique expérimentale de Nov Cheanick (1989, Cambodge) en réflexion autour du point de vue. Peintre de la matérialité du sol, l’artiste explore un autre élément haut dans le ciel à l’occasion de son exposition au Pavillon André Citröen invité par Aerophile avec le concours du Ballon Generali. Les questions du plan, du territoire et des frontières tant mentaux que physiques deviennent essentiels dans sa pratique et s’ajoutent à ses recherches autour de la perception. Comment vois-tu le sol depuis les airs ? « Il n’y a pas de haut ou de bas, vous pouvez ne pas…

“Cycle”, 2018, Cambodia

“Painter Nov Cheanick is showcased in “Cycle”, a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery at Rosewood Phnom Penh from May 16 to September 1, 2018. “Cycle” surveys one decade of Cheanick’s artistic practice, from early figurative drawing studies to recent abstract paintings, and is themed around both physical and transcendental regeneration. “I don’t create anything new; I just transform what exists.

“Break the system”, 2017, France

“Nov cheanick « breaks the system ». Surtout le sien. Il aspire à créer sans aucun contrôle, aucune pression, créer librement non seulement spirituellement mais également dans son corps et son âme. Cette série témoigne du lâcher-prise de l’artiste. « J’ai détruit mon propre système » dit Nov Cheanick , ”Avant, je pensais beaucoup à ce que les gens diraient de mes peintures, j’étais trop timide pour exprimer ce que je ressentais au plus profond de moi. Ces nouvelles œuvres viennent de mon âme. C’est mon réel moi, sans aucune intention de séduire ou créer de la beauté ”. Dans cette série l’artiste se…

“Break the system”, 2016, Cambodia

“Nov Cheanick breaks the system. First and foremost, he breaks down his own. He thrives to create without any form of control, without any pressure – to create freely not only in his mind, but also through his body and his soul. This series testifies to a broad « let it go » mentality of the artist. « I’ve destroyed my own system”, says Nov Cheanick, “before, I thought too much about what people would say about my paintings, I was too shy to express what I felt from deep inside. This new artwork comes from my soul. This is…
