Familial bond is a timeless and very important value. Although my siblings are separated through canvas, they are connected by the raw ochre backdrop drawn from our family home’s walls. The motif of a transparent glass bird captivates my subjects with the enchanting play of light through its transparent form—a unifying symbol celebrating children’s joy in life’s simple pleasures. The ability of finding joy in the simple things in life is natural for children but lost as they get older. I believe it is an important ability to exercise, so this artwork is to remind viewers to learn from children to be more curious and actively find simple pleasures life offers.
