Gordon Cheung's super-real paintings capture hallucinations between the virtual and actual realities of our globalised world reflecting how we entered the new millennium with one threatening wave of apocalypse after another, harshly underlined by the 9/11 attacks, a global 'War on Terror', while the world also grappled with its fragile relationship to nature itself.
Cheung's work is a poetic and disturbing reflection of the drama and trauma of contemporary life. Working with spray-paint, oils, acrylics, pastels, pages of the Financial Times stock listings and ink, he also makes references to popular culture, with Scooby Doo characters and characters from films appearing alongside images from mythology, iconic paintings, magazines and the internet.
In 'The 1000 Yard Stare' Cheung will be showing a series of works from 2005 which include pieces such as 'Colliderscape 14' where FT print of the stock listings are overflowing like a waterfall into a chasm; optimism is brought into this dystopian scene in the form of a rainbow. aspex has also commissioned Cheung to make new work, on a military theme, incorporating 1950's images of US staff watching nuclear testing. As he describes it, "people looking at the Apolocalypse".
British born Chinese, Gordon Cheung's parents moved from Hong Kong to London in the 1960's. Born in 1975, he studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. He exhibits internationally and was in the largest and most ambitious survey of recent developments in art from the UK: The British Art Show 6.
