It is difficult to tell from these shots but Cheung often uses financial newspapers in his pieces.
Both Plateau and River are made of financial newspaper, archival inkjet, acrylic and sand on canvas. These are remarkable works and the booth was another that seemed to have a large crowd examining the pieces. Both of these works are a bit larger than 58 x 79 inches.
The pieces have a dreamlike realism. They conjure something primal that lurks in the subconscious. These have these vast backdrops depicting the natural world with a small space reserved for the man made. His palette is diverse and veers wildly between works. If you see his pieces in person spend time with them.
Cheung's family come from Hong Kong and he was born in London where he later attended the Royal College of Art.
