Gordon Cheung

The Fall of the Rebel Angels

London-based artist, Gordon Cheung takes inspiration from John Martin's famous 19th-century illustrations for Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost in an exhibition at Alan Cristea Gallery throughout February 2008.

 This biblical story covers the fall of the rebel angels into Hell, the temptation of Adam and Eve and their subsequent expulsion from paradise. Cheung sees this story as having a metaphorical relevance to the way we have entered the twenty first century. The series of 24 works in the exhibition depict imaginary worlds on the brink of devastation reminiscent of a sci-fi landscapes in spray paint, Chinese ink and Financial Times stock listings.
