Chrissy Cheung’s images compel the viewer to follow the lines and modes of connection through which she brings her work to vibrant life.
Though abstract in form, her paintings and drawings employ figurative material in complex, nuanced, and detailed ways. Though the complementary logics of collage, juxtaposition, and transformation, for example, such matierial- from the worlds of the reai, the imaginery, the subconscious, and more- becomes powerfully allusive.
