Sao Srey Mao, born 1986:
“The time is long but runs so fast for me, there is one story of the Khmer rouge, a story of my mother, my grandmother and father, neighbors and no-one can ever finish the story, for tears gag them. To heal, I know everything will just take time and everything will be in the shadows. History never dies, the spirits always lives on so we take care of our spirits. It not our past but our future that we look to now.”
Srey Mao graduated from PHARE Ponleu Selapak in 2006 and works at the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity, where she uses painting as an environmental education tool and teaches drawing. She also exhibited her own works in 2008.
