British artist Gordon Cheung is featured at ASU Art Museum in Altered States: Paintings by Gordon Cheung from the Stéphane Janssen Collection, his first solo exhibition in a U.S. museum.
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.

I speak to artist Gordon Cheung about artworks as warning signs and the role of the artist in telling cautionary tales. "Artists try and face what might be seen as monstrous aspects of civilisation," he says. "Only by facing these things can change be affected."
For Wild New Territories, Cheung has created a new sculpture (as yet untitled) from a modified beehive, a bull's skull and a swarm of wild honeybees. For Cheung, the skull represents the stock market; the bees represent society. Over the course of the exhibition the bees will colonise the skull, building their honeycomb around and over the bone. Cheung often juxtaposes symbolic imagery of man and beast to explore ideas of conquest, subjugation and power. This is the first time he has used bees in his work as a way of exploring the dynamics of the global economic landscape and he has been mesmerised by their activity.
"We need the humanity - the beautiful humanity - of artists' stories," he says.
