in a world full of fast pace and ever changing trends and fads, photographer david goh believes that sometimes you have to take a step back and observe the world before us, in its most raw and muted forms. as an artist, david hopes to create a social commentary about the state of our world through his own distinct style.
david’s body of work – characterized by the artist’s unmistakable minimalist, nostalgic approach – applies the principles of pure photography; using simply light and shade. parameters of a world without color encourage you to see things differently and as a result textures, shapes and shadows become more apparent, creating their own narratives. by eliminating the colours in a picture, it allows the viewers to concentrate on the core subject.
he believes that there is an artist in all of us and that humans, as sentient beings, are capable of doing and creating many beautiful things. he sees beauty as subjective and at times prevalent in the most unexpected and flawed places. by cracking and delving beneath the surface, only then will you be able see the underlying beauty and emotions of the subject.
vastness is david’s artistic exploration and interpretation of giuseppe de giosa’s art and textile collections.
