Biography

Sapira Cheuk’s work revolves around issues of the body and embodiment. Her practice incorporates traditional Sumi painting techniques and geometric elements to depict the complexity of the Subject, agency, and corporeality, while building an alternative narrative of not only bodily desires, but also intersubjective relations. Her works have been showcased at numerous exhibitions, including Institute of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Orange County Contemporary Art Center, Riverside Art Museum, Rochester Contemporary Art Museum, Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art, and The Robert & Frances Fullerton Museum of Art. She received her BA from University of California, Riverside and MFA from California State University, San Bernardino.
