Gordon Cheung: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

New Gallery Walsall, 7 August 2009- 1 November 2009

Gordon Cheung creates hallucinogenic visions inspired by a wide range of sources including science fiction, 18th century romantic painting, zombie films, cartoons and current affairs. His works reflect on such contemporary issues as the war on terror, religion, economics, globalisation, the digital age and technology.

 

For this exhibition, the artist has created a significant new body of works including contemporary interpretations of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. For the first time, sculpture, animations and laser etchings are shown alongside his more familiar mixed media paintings.

 

The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with an essay by Paul Hobson.
