This project is part of wen yau’s on-going Painting like an Artist series in which the artist starts from zero and acquires painting skills from various artists in Hong Kong. For the 2-year durational project After One Hundred at Oi!, she did a plein-air each month in the neighbourhood area within North Point district where she had been living since childhood.
By using the painting techniques learnt from other artists and drawing a place in North Point suggested by them, wen yau intends to re-observe the community where she finds familiar. Local neighbours and friends will be openly invited to join the plein air every month, and to encounter art in everyday life settings. The paintings she made during the 2 years not only convey stories or memories of people about these local places, but also present a survey on Hong Kong painters of different styles as well as her exploration of painting as an art form itself.
