Because of different upbringings and experiences, it is natural to look at things from different perspectives between two generations. As a result, disagreements between parents and children are inevitable. So, if you change the viewpoints, will there be a different picture?
Have you ever considered the meanings behind your family conversations? Are there any preconceptions or assumptions if the message touches you?
As with yarns, blood relationships are intricately entangled. Pulling them too hard can break them; loosening them too much will cause them to get twisted up. If an ideal balance could be established, perhaps some of the struggles can be resolved. Maybe a more harmonious relationship can flourish and both parties appreciate the warmth from each other. Through her creativity, the artist tries to iron out the issues between herself and her family. She places a high value on keeping in touch with her loved ones. For the first time, she is attempting to interact with her family through visual language by her artwork. Regardless of the effectiveness of this nonverbal communication, it is a wish that the two generations will be able to untangle their family knots.
