Rickie Cheuk – architecture student

Till Roll Cup

 

Thursday 17th until 26th May 2017, Monday to Friday, 11 am – 4pm

A final year Architecture student from University College London. Rickie has been exploring innovative uses of paper that also give something to the community.  Works include: a series of paper tableware made out receipts and paper: A1 and A2 artworks that demonstrate the versatility of paper; glow in the dark photographic artworks created on cardboard and paper like structures created using food waste. 

 The image here is of a block of old receipts made into a pot that was machined using a lathe. The patterns on the pot are natural and result from the heat generated that ‘prints’ the wood like grain onto it.

Philip’s Interest in art began at an early age and he spent much of his time drawing and modelling figures. This experience developed into a love for creating sculpture out of paper, his preferred medium. This natural material was not only easy to manipulate but also an inexpensive alternative to traditional, sculptural supplies.

He received no formal training as an artist, but was hired as a freelance painter and carver. A firm believer in “having a go”, he exhibited at the Nottingham Midland Group Arts Centre in 1986. This pivotal exhibition launched his new career as a professional sculptor.

Since 1985, several major solo exhibitions of his unique paper figures have been touring the U.K. His collection includes: Paper People, People in Place, My Best Friend?, Strangely Familiar and a series of life-sized cardboard animals called Wildlife in Danger. During the early 1990s he contributed to the Recycled Art Exhibition in Paris, France.

Philip has been commissioned by International paper manufacturers to create artwork utilizing their materials. In addition, he has produced window displays for the prestigious department store, Harvey Nichols, in London. His largest commission to date was constructing 60 figures for the Nottingham-based visitor attraction, The Tales of Robin Hood. Philip has appeared on numerous television programs with his work, and a portion of his art belongs to permanent museum and art collections in the UK. He has also taken on the role of “artist-in-residence”, working with adults and children in a variety of educational settings.
