The design concept of Family originates from my father’s car maintenance business. Much influenced by the environment where I was raised, the material of the artwork came from the said environment; I used engine oil, diesel, and furnace oil as my paint and enable the memory of family to continue.
Meanwhile, I painted my family portrait of three generations. During the process when I paint, I unravel my family memory from my childhood. Because the material does not dry out, the work turns vague as time goes by, just as our memory does, it fades away through time.
