Synopsis

 

You are welcome to C & G Artpartment and 7 other venues to visit and exchange ideas with the artist.

Presented by:  C & G Artpartment

Curated by:  CHEUNG Clara

Artist:  CHENG Yee Man(Gum)

Content: Between September 2013 and August 2015, Gum paints one self-portrait each week, based upon mass media’s representation of himself. During this painting project, he has done a large-scale study to search for his portraits appearing on newspaper, magazines, televisions, online-media etc, and then re-present his images from mass media on canvas. 

 

Hong Kong has been lack of systematic writings about local art history. Sorted files of artworks being represented in mass media can formulate an effective art archive. 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 make use of the reports of the artist 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.

Exhibit: 
-100 oil paintings on canvas in different sizes (from 20 X 30cm to 70 X 100cm) will be exhibited
