SECRET MESSAGE BY RICHARD CHOW

July 16, 2019 

In a further expansion of fine art photographic elasticity, Richard Chow presents a provocative monolithic abstraction to challenge our sense of time with his Secret Message. The similarity to 2001: A Space Odyssey cannot go unnoticed, in this precise meditation of time in space. Gazing upon the sleek blackness provides a friendly disarming immobility; it is zen-like in its pacific embrace. Here, therefore, is Mr. Chow’s artful schism from the story’s imagination of a timeless space being presented to contemporary minds which are accustomed to constant change. In this manner, we can’t help but find sentimentality in the naturally beautiful setting in the art work and its eons of cosmic motion which have finally rested upon this small parchment of geographical wonder.

Is there a sense of fear or danger or ominousness to the composition? The placid setting calms our nerves to simply reflect. And what is that secrete message we receive? It’s a poetic scientific gesture for Mr. Chow to illuminate a black body which ideally emits the light it absorbs. Here, there is then an expression of the superb beauty of Nature and its engrossing solar details – a communique on how negligent we are in appreciating the sunlight in our daily lives.
