South Ho Siu Nam, ‘Every Daily 26’, 2013, Blindspot Gallery

Every Daily (2013) is Ho's first to incorporate the element of painting, based on a collection of black and white photographs of Tin Shui Wai, one of the largest new towns in Hong Kong where he lives. While the artist picks the colour of each block by throwing a dice, Ho fills the sky between the densely packed residential buildings with uniformly sized blocks on the photographs using the paintbrushes left by his late father. Through the mechanical and monotonous process of painting blocks, Ho attempts to reach a meditative state of self-healing for the loss of his father.
