Charles Cham at the Ganesha

'Opposite Attraction' - Malaysian Artist Returns to Four Season's Ganesha Gallery.

(2/25/2002) Critically acclaimed Malaysian Artist, Charles Cham, returns to the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay through April 4, 2002.

In a show entitled "Opposite Attraction," the artists will launch his 15th solo exhibition since 1995, revisiting his favorite theme of Ying and Yang - the duality of life and the attraction of opposites. The artist believes that everything in the physical world has another side, whether visible or not. He is also a strong believer in the art of drawing and in the simplicity of forms. "Simplicity is the most profound stage one can achieve, in art and in life."

According to the Artist, "There is no painting without drawing. For a painting to be strong, it has to come from a drawing. Drawing is the basis of it all - the mother of art. Drawing is the idea, the thought; painting is the emotion, the expression. I believe that drawing is thinking and painting is feeling. Therefore, I draw what I think and paint what I feel. As there is no feeling without thinking, there is also no painting without drawing. Sometimes I feel more comfortable calling my works painted drawings rather than just paintings."

Charles Cham maintains a permanent studio and gallery in Malacca, Malaysia, and has exhibited in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bali, Australia, France, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Portugal and Malaysia.

The exhibition Opposite Attraction by Charles Cham runs February 27 until April 4, 2002, from 10.00 a.m. until 6.00 p.m. daily at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay.
