It was a sunny summer afternoon. I took my parents for walk in the Terra Nova Rural Park in Richmond, British Columbia. When they got tired from walking, they took a seat to rest. I happened to catch this moment from a view of their back. It felt to me like the time stopped at that moment. All I could feel was unlimited peace and warmth. My parents have been married for 35 years. The mutual trust between them is one of the key factors for their marriage. I am so grateful to see my parents together. That was the happiest afternoon in the park.
This piece got accepted in the 2021 Peace & Trust Exhibition
I got to know from the Federation gallery that 2021 is the International Year of Peace and Trust. Using the universal language of art, the gallery invites us to explore the process of achieving global harmony using constructive and respectful conversation, empathy, and cooperation. The federation gallery is exhibiting pieces that tackle peace, trust, political dialogue, mutual understanding and/or cooperation. This could be symbolically through an abstract piece, or literally though figurative works that grapple with concepts of trust, landscapes that promote peaceful feeling.
