At first glance, Gordon Cheung’s collaged paintings look like an art student experimenting with Photoshop filters for the first time. The posterization, find edges, & solarized effects are actually achieved via a complex process of actual layering, which for Cheung always begins with the stock listings from newspapers as his base.
Cheung’s multi-media collages capture the hallucinations between the virtual & actual realities of a globalized world oscillating between Utopia & Dystopia.
“I like to think of the bull riders as a contemporary version of the minotaur, which to me is an analogy of the financial bull market & extreme corporate being.”
