Light is the basic element that makes up the human visual perception of dimensions. Diverting from meticulously structured spaces, Szelit Cheung fixates on the transformative power of light in his second solo exhibition at Rossi & Rossi. Titled Dark, the exhibition presents four new series on linen and wood, all depicting spaces illuminated by a single light source. The perpetual ray of light often beams through a window, a skylight or an opening in a wall, halting our sense of time. The abstraction of structural features detaches Cheung’s works from symbolic or narrative representation – leaving viewers to decide what they see.
