artfirm opening at Chrissy Cheung’s art exhibit
The current exhibition presents new contemporary paintings and drawings by Montreal-based artist, Chrissy Cheung. Every Method: No Method, explores a different stretch of improvisation and collaging technique with the intension of visual impact.
The title of the show is thematic in each piece as Cheung breaks down the traditional use of many elements. At times she is stenciling, gelling canvas over canvas, using image transfer, incorporating copper and silver leaf into her painting. The work reflects a fresh approach into her insights of abstraction. It requires the viewer to observe closely and from a distance to understand and experience the effect of the textures applied.
Chrissy Cheung received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in 2000. She completed an artist residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2005. Cheung has exhibited in over 40 selected solo and group art exhibitions across Canada. In 2009, she received a Canada Council for the Arts, Visual Arts Project Grant.
