(Washington, DC b. USA)
Cheung’s work captures experience through time and movement onto the surface of a photographic medium. Each work manifests the physical expression and motion through a combination of natural occurrences and Cheung’s own gestures.
Each of Cheung’s pieces begins with light and gesture. The expressive nature of her work translates as calm and contemplative and others as aggressive or panicked apprehension. The compositions of her work are a combination of the artists’ intervention and natural forces. Cheung’s works play off the rich history of the photographic medium and explores the push and pull between physical reality and captured reality.
