Enoch CHEUNG 張康生
Enoch Cheung obtained Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) and Master of Fine Art degree (majoring in Painting) co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School. He also received a Master degree of art from the UK and a Master degree in interactive media from the Netherlands. He has been involved in many multi-disciplinary projects and is interested in exploring the new perspectives of different mediums and their concepts. For instance, he initiated Pseudo Collection – What do artists collect in 2016 – a curatorial project to investigate the idea of ‘Artists as collectors’ and the meanings of collecting in the field of art.
Cheung is currently a PhD candidate in Translation, Interpreting and Inter-cultural study. His research is focusing on intersemiotic relations in contemporary art and art writings.
Looking back at the course of my creative career and teaching, even though I have been touching upon different media and disciplines, I have never given up on ‘Painterly’. My understanding of the term is my starting point, which has extended to affect my attitudes, concept and vision.
The overlapping of reality, memory and recurring dreams is a popular subject in art. The word ‘dreaming’, however, has derived from a new context since 2019. It has impacted my sensory memory of this city, ranging from weird to absurd, lingering in my mind and running around in my blood.
