Chong Ying Ying (b. 1994) is an artist based in Singapore and has completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from Lasalle College of the Arts in 2016. She is fascinated with the undefined spaces of the urban environment and seeks to reconcile with these spaces through her works. She has participated in group exhibitions such as Art Moves II (2016-2017), and Undescribed #2 (2017). Her works are also featured on The Artling.
With a keen interest in the environment and the occasional habit of people watching, my photographic works mostly put focus on the observations of the dialogues between humans and their urban environments. I believe that the relationship that people have with their environment are like cogs in a machine, and only through it’s elimination that you can understand how immense it really is, when it seemed so insignificant as just a part of a monstrous machine. The composition of my works reflects just that ― isolating or reducing my subjects within a minimal composition with intention to allow the viewers to notice what that is often neglected in our daily lives.
