"The sunlight is like the light from the television, collective but intimate." -Dave Chow
DAVE CHOW's subtle interventions cast daily objects in a different light, giving them a quiet voice that draws the viewer into a new context. The mindfully constructed relationship between each object and the space in which it is experienced builds a connection between the artist and viewer that is both open and intimate.
