Art is often about grappling with working with the unknown. We are often unsure of what lies dormant or inert within us, and it takes a certain kind of substance, also unbeknownst to us, that causes us to move and be duly moved.
Vincent Chow’s paintings look to capture that tidal shift in our emotions, in search for the push and pull of both artistic dilemma and affirmation. Paying heed to the artist’s inclinations and employing subtle, suggestive expressions that guide rather than announce to evoke the viewer, Chow taps into the innate nature of an artist’s hand to achieve a complementary balance that is primitive and sensitively abstract.
Chow’s instinctive experimentations with the medium of his choice leads him to wander to a place that is effervescent, liberated from the notions of limitations. His playful, whimsical colour scheme present a strong, staid side, leading us to call in mind that softness always wins over hardness, water will eventually erode stone. Therefore as an artist Chow has strategically implemented his tao of lightness in matter, thought and aesthetic, to complement the heavy, serious, critical aspects of his practice.
Vincent Chow will be presenting his 3rd solo exhibition Light Breaks (Where No Sun Shines), curated by Euginia Tan, at Flaneur Gallery, a space situated within the cultural belt of Little India that seeks to promote emerging artists’ works.
