Chow Chee Yong would be presenting his 6th solo exhibition at Kay Ngee Tan Architects Gallery from 19th Feb to 15 Mar.

Drawing influences from the surrealists, most notably Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte and Op Artist MC Escher, Chow questions possibilities of subverting expectations of the experiences. These processes of questioning reality forms the catalyst of visual ideas that propels Chow to sketch, and thus beginning the recording and compilation of these photographic images necessary to make the non-existential alive. The collective of images were finally juxtaposed and fixed onto the final photographic print in the darkroom.

This would also mark the publication of his first monologue, which includes the images in the exhibition and also some production notes. I had the privilege of taking a sneak peek at the book and I think that it would definitely be an important addition to the local photographic scene.
