The Works of Andrew Hem

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 03, 2012
Andrew Hem's introspective, otherworldly paintings and sketches explore realities one step away from our everyday waking life. What if our thoughts flickered across the surface of our skin like ephemeral silent movies? What if spirits walked among us, trying to find their path? What if there were no racism, and even the most outlandish people were accepted?

Born during his parents' flight from Cambodia in the wake of the Khmer Rouge genocide, artist Andrew Hem's otherworldly paintings carry the weight of his gentle, animistic Khmer ancestors, combined with a dynamic urban sensibility acquired during his childhood in a tough Los Angeles neighborhood. Working in gouache, oil, and acrylic, Hem's haunting impressions of culture and landscape evoke the intangible realms of memories and dreams.
