The present publication offers a comprehensive retrospective on Cheo Chai-Hiang’s works. These works, as said by Kwok Kian Chow, Director of Singapore Art Museum, are not traces of Cheo’s thoughts and processes, they are the thoughts and processes themselves. The unfinished and transient quality of the works draws the audience to the artist’s train of thought. Artist biography is included in the publication.
