“A Long Journey”
WOOK JANG CHEUNG
SHOPS AT CRYSTALS AT THE ARIA
Las Vegas September 15-October 13
“Statues stand, I want my work to be in motion, to connote the journey. These figures gaze out at an unseen destination that is beyond our horizon,” said Wook Jang Cheung.
“Cheung’s expansion of form is fluid and elegant. The stainless steel pieces represent strength and endurance. ‘The Long Journey’ easily resonates in each of us, at any time and any given place, as we all yearn to reach a destination,” said Henkel. “For the artist, the variety in forms ultimately represent life as a metaphor. The road is a representative model. Cheung opens up the road to life through his sculptures. Just as the way journeys do to us, roads, too, can lead us to a model of life.”
