Jessica Cheung, a Hong Kong born Chinese.
2005-2010 Master of Fine Arts

Jessica mainly does gestural, bravura oil paintings. She loves to express more than an external narrative and present internal, spiritual meaning in her work. Her paintings focuses on the real - a true experience, and is inspired by the still-life genre. Even Mr David McKee, an art critic in New York, described some of her work as “landscapes of consumerism”. Results of her new inventions on art gave her motivation to keep going to paint. So far, she gain awards in USA and Hong Kong.

Jewelry Garden I, 45" x 54", Oil on canvas, February 2010
Jewelry Garden II, 64" x 64", Oil on canvas, March 2010
These two paintings are Jessica's work that were done in 2010. They gave me a feeling that the masterpiece is in a living situation, so vivid, just like in front of a jewelry store, which the jewelry trading is operating, also the jewelery can show the feature of “landscapes of consumerism”.
