Curated by Neil Walker
Artist talk: Fri 12 Jan 2007
6.30 - 7.30pm
Followed by Private view: Fri 12 Jan 7.30 - 9.30pm
Epic in scale and content, Gordon Cheung’s landscapes
recall variously the apocalyptic visions of John Martin and
the timeless floating world of traditional Chinese brush and
ink landscapes brought bang up to date with psychedelic spray
paint colours, graffiti and collaged Financial Times listings.
He paints a flickering liminal world of information overload,
where virtual reality merges with the urban landscape and
utopian structures buckle and melt in some suggested natural
or man-made disaster.
This exhibition provides an opportunity to see more work by
this exciting young artist whose work featured in the British
Art Show 6 exhibition at the Djanogly Art Gallery and across
Nottingham in 2006.
