Two Suns is an abstract representation of two relationships.  

The first one started when the artist’s grandfather left their house and started living in an elderly home. It was then that the artist felt the presence of his grandfather for the very first time.  

The second relationship unveiled itself during a visit the artist paid to the elderly home. His grandfather recalled the days when he moved to Hong Kong on his own, and mentioned a lady he would never forget. Despite their mutual feeling towards each other, she left hastily and got married in Hawaii.  

Now they are 18 hours away, decades apart. 

‘If you had never left, we would be living under the same sun.’
