This is an exhibition of self-portrait paintings by Gum CHENG between September 2013 and August 2015. Gum paints one self-portrait each week, based upon mass media’s representation of himself. Because of his role as an artist, Gum’s image is being represented and documented in mass media. Instead of being all the way passive, Gum Cheng has adapted a more pro-active approach to re-appropriate the power of the media to further express his own artistic ideas. The current series of paintings is part of the "Curate No More" two year long project by Gum CHENG. It makse use of the re-presentation of "artists" in mass media. A simplified personal history is being re-packaged in the paintings to reveal the sustainable development of an alternative dimension of the artist’s life.
