   At first glance, Gordon Cheung's collaged paintings may look like an art student experimenting with Photoshop filters for the first time. The posterization, find edges, & solarized effects are actually achieved via a complex process of actual layering, which for Cheung always begins with the stock listings from newspapers as his base.

  "I saw stock listings, mapping the torrential streams of capital around the world as a dense metaphor for the utopian euphoria linked to the prospects of cyberspace, the 'information superhighway'."

   "I like to think of the bull riders as a contemporary version of the minotaur, which to me is an analogy of the financial bull market & extreme corporate being."
