"In Paris, the French will walk up the street when feeling upset. They go window shopping, and the window is like a a way out; they take themselves into another space, and then pull away from the reality. It's like a healing ritual. Because the different time, space, and the atmosphere make the sorrow and complex emotions be absorbed, and then sink." The paintings of TAI are like small windows with a metaphor of her native culture story. You, from different countries or backgrounds maybe have a similar connection to her story. "The two strange lives are connected, and then the barriers are melted, the conflicts are resolved, and then there is a warm temperature that melts the puzzling distance."
