In The Transcendence of Love, a father’s love shines through the seemingly quiet and dull atmosphere of a public train. The boy sleeps with his head resting on his father’s lap. The father, gazing at his son with affection and care, occasionally caresses the boy’s head. Mr Lim uses his painting to take a critical look at the world around him, yet shares the quiet beauty of a private moment to inspire a sense of warmth.
