Yao Jui-Chung turns daily experiences into the subject matter of his painting, where against the backdrop of idyllic landscape, the concurrence of his children's formative years and his andropause becomes an important chapter in their lives. Rather than a picture of family life, this body of work is more like the fantasia of a reclusive father, comprising one illusory image after another that may happen in the real world.

Eight Days a Week is inspired by the artist's life for the past eight years as a middle-aged man who`s been taking care of his daughters while making art at home, therefore losing touch with the friends.

Jui-Chung Yao undertook his ACC residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California in 1998.
