Visual artist Steph Choy lives and works 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. Choy uses multiple processes of working, showing her technical abilities in sculpture and image making. As well as this, she questions the limits of viewing through using these methods within art.
Mostly, Choy focuses on classical still life portraitures in her photographic series, engaging in the historic discourse of contemplation. She forms narratives to explore the sexualities and sensualities of the human form through this. Choy intends these images to be read as photographic poetry, with the objects functioning as metaphors with multiple readings. Prior to this, she explores the body in relation to nature and the domestic setting in her work.
