Chatting Bhaktaphur Nepal

Chatting Bhaktaphur Nepal

Item Description:

Chatting is a painting that Ong Kim Seng made in one of many treks he had done to the Himalayas. He explains that “trekking is not mountaineering, it is not the comandeering of the peak, but rather a walk through it, walking as far possible, as high as possible, as close as possible -- if not to the peak itself.” "I have to feel a place before I paint it. If I have good feelings for a scene - just as I may have good feelings for someone I meet - I know i will have the will to paint it well. For me, and for all painters, I believe, inspiration comes naturally when thereês a link between the artist and his subject,” he added.

As a plein air painter, Ong captures his subjects masterfully, stays true to its environment and portrays it for his viewers. Despite the chatter between the two subject, the simple balance between the subjects, the space, and the elements within it: the doorway, the windows and the objects around it, makes this painting a quiet piece, one that it in tune with the magical meditational character of the city of Bhaktapur.
