"In this society, I often find that victims can only reproduce the pattern of their childhood, and this through the next generation.

In this exhibition, I want to ask a few questions with my work:

- “Masters”, why, how to tame these children?

What are these children in their heads?

- And did these children ultimately become the thought of the father?

​- Will they pay for their father's sins?"

LU Hang fused Western liberal artistic expression with a rigorous formal language in his paintings. Using his unique artistic language through form and color, he presents his feelings and thoughts on the story.

The theme of this depiction is "discipline", where the collision between power and the individual is depicted as parent and child. In Foucault's study of the spectrum of power in "Discipline and Punish", he mentions three types of individual images formed in the second half of the 18th century: 1. the tortured body, 2. the soul with a manipulated appearance, and 3. the trained body These image mechanisms do not only exist in history , but also exist today. Power relations between people, such as "the present looks at the past, and the present is also seen by the future", will continue. In the rules of the characters in the painting, discipline is considered as against the law, and the two conflicts confront each other.Therefore, in a disciplinary society, discipline replaces the law.Predecessors train and punish the younger generation, which leads to a self - excessive restriction in people. Ultimately, this leads to a form of socially dominant control.

The success of this solo exhibition is the artist's reflection on reality. With vivid colors and a microscopic narrative style, the artist not only provides viewers with visual enjoyment, but also inspires them to reflect on our current world.
