GORDON CHEUNG, THE PROMISED LAND, March 19, 2009 - April 18, 2009

GORDON CHEUNG
THE PROMISED LAND MARCH 19 - APRIL 18, 2009 513 WEST 20TH STREET, NEW YORK, NY 10011 GORDON CHEUNG Jack Shainman is pleased to present British born Chinese artist Gordon Cheung's first solo gallery show in the USA. For Cheung we are all in an in-between state. Using Financial Times stock listings as a ground in his multi-media paintings Cheung depicts spaces inspired by 19th-century Romantic landscape paintings and Science Fiction. The listings are a metaphor for the dominant global economic ideology that maps the torrential streams of capital around the world. Cheung's paintings are 'virtual-reality environments' where 'faith' in the numbers of the stock exchange to deliver a 'Promised Land' dictates our lives. An overarching theme of his work is of the 'techno-sublime'; instead of an overwhelming experience of nature bringing us closer to God, the visual rhetoric of the sublime has exchanged to omnipotent information which overwhelms us with an artificial landscape. Cheung based the show around the romantic myth of the pioneering spirit and the ideas of manifest destiny. He is fascinated by the landscape genre where there is an undercurrent of propaganda of taking what God has 'given' you, never mind the blood soaking along the way - Beauty, Shock and Awe; War on Terror and political gain. Gordon Cheung lives and works in London. He earned his Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 2001 and has exhibited his work in both solo and group exhibitions internationally at such venues as the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the Aldrich Museum, Connecticut; the Royal Academy of Arts, London; Arizona State University Art Museum, Arizona; and the BALTIC, Gateshead. He has a forthcoming major museum solo show at the New Art Gallery, Walsall UK 2009

Born to Chinese parents and raised in the urban environment of London, Cheung's works traverse cultures, juxtaposing images, symbols and ideas from a diverse range of sources: news and popular media, video games, graffiti, architecture and historical paintings. Rather than focus on the original ideas presented in these sources, Cheung repurposes these images to highlight contemporary issues such as ecological destruction and capitalism and consumerism gone awry. At the same time, his works include motifs found throughout his prior work: oceans of numbers and financial data, and the bold use of color balanced alongside familiar contemporary images. "I wasn't choosing these [sources] consciously due to their historical significance," says Cheung, referencing some of the more recognizable paintings he's drawn from, "but rather responding to the ideas in the works that I felt were relevant to contemporary times and the themes that underlie all my work." Cheung's work combines collage, Japanese ink brushwork, photographic transfers, oil and spray paint on top of stock listings from the distinctively pink London Financial Times; the contrast of his fantastical landscapes with streams of numbers seem harbingers of recent financial crises around the world. The exhibition will feature selected paintings as well as four new video works by the artist. Gordon Cheung will be in attendance at ASU Art Museum to present a free lecture in the museum's Friday Conversations @11 series on Jan. 22, 2010. He will also meet with students and classes while in Tempe. Cheung earned his MA from the Royal College of Art in 2001. He currently lives and works in London. The ASU Art Museum is recognized for presenting groundbreaking contemporary artists and artforms, often in their first museum exhibition. Gordon Cheung (Solo Show) Gordon Cheung is an artist whose work captures the mood and values of our specific historical moment. He continues a long-standing artistic tradition of imagining the end of civilisation, a form of emotional and spiritual escape valve operated since man found a means to express himself. His searing visions of a civilisation veering disastrously off course, into the abyss of spectacle and consumption, moral and intellectual bankruptcy, has never felt more relevant than at the present time, when global ideologies are shifting at a rapid rate, fanned by economic and environmental crises. Perhaps more alarming is the `post-political' resignation which accompanies these wider developments, and the general consensus of the contemporary mass media that the return of religion has emerged as the most important factor in global politics and culture today. In his prophetic visions, underpinned by spiritual and utopian yearning, Cheung finds a compressed sign for these economic, political and spiritual crises. He is a William Blake for our times.
