    Gordon Cheung:  New Order “Vanitas”

    British artist Gordon Cheung, has created a remarkable body of paintings and prints known collectively as Breaking Tulips. These visually stunning works draw inspiration directly from the floral masterpieces of 17th century Dutch and Flemish painters such as Jan Davidsz. de Heem (1606-1684). 

     “Cheung starts with the exotic tulip as the ultimate symbol of financial speculation and financial disaster in the burgeoning capitalist society of 17th century Netherlands. His works position the tulip as the object of irrational pursuit to the point of frenzy which led to one of the most spectacular “bubbles” in the economic history of western Europe.  His paintings use various sumptuous still life compositions as the starting points for variations on the theme of gradual and cyclical (but ultimate) collapse of over-heated commodities and securities markets in the contemporary world.” – Roger Ward, President and CEO, ANSG
