curated by:

The Painting Year is for artists looking to advance their practice, developing their skills and content whilst being guided by two experienced and celebrated painters Dan Coombs and Guy Allott. Limited to 12 participants, the course provides artists with a community and mentoring whilst actively engaging with painting language and opening doors to untried possibilities.

JEN CHAU
As a London based (American-born-Hong Kongese) artist, I have been dissecting and merging my photography and painting skills over the last few years whilst working as an Art Psychotherapist and an Art Director. My artwork is often a reflection of my own psychological journey, using art to challenge and break down both self and societally-imposed limitations.
Painting is an internal and self-reflective process that results in a physical object to be viewed, judged and reflected on by others. I find fascinating the power that we imbue into a painting: an object of monetary value, social commentary, an expression of our unconscious, political rebellion etc. Sometimes I try to sit as the painting, being stared at, sometimes ignored, being projected onto, being the cause of disagreement and insight and sometimes even thrown away or stolen: a single painting can hold the idea and psychologies of all those who come into contact with it.
My paintings develop their own trajectories over time as I incorporate various emerging influences and themes that resonate from my day-to-day. As my paintings are essentially a transcript of my preoccupations much of my work this year has been reflecting on time and uncertainty.
