“The Father”I want you to experience the artwork. I have incorporated a narrative of an incident and its memories into the work. It is an exploration of dissipating recollections. The shadow of a reality that is disintegrating due to fragmentation. A trace of the reality that may have been far removed from the original story, yet sparks of truth can always be seen within it. Unity will always be disrupted and disturbed. I have tried to revisit those collective memories that I cannot fathom. The manifold and contradictory quality of incident has turned it into an endless cycle. The beginning, the intermediate stage, the end—repeat.
