Steph Choy is a visual artist living and working between Singapore and London.
In her artistic practice she investigates the bodily gestures through the complex layers of casting, the juxtaposition with found objects and the photographic gaze. These multiple processes of working show her technical abilities in sculpture and image making as well as questioning the limits of viewing these methods within art.
Her photographic series can be seen as a contemporary reminiscent of classical still life portraitures, and as such are engaged in the historic discourse of contemplation. Through these elements she forms narratives to explore the sexualities and sensualities of the human form. These images can be read as photographic poetry, with the objects functioning as metaphors and the interpretations open to multiple readings. Her previous works also look at the body in relation to nature and the domestic setting.
