    "It is a special cultural background that has made the 'Standard Family' a reality. The three person family, including one single child, is the motif of this series of paintings. Through multiple painting techniques each work depicts an example of this stereotyped model at a different point in their lives, giving each work their own sense of time. Careful observation of the life style, fashion and inherited features of each model family reveal their present and future situations.

    I am accustomed to taking the role of the observer, paying attention to every fascinating and beautiful details of our reality.

    When I paint I have a strange feeling!"

    Wang Jinsong in 8+8-1: Selected Paintings by 15 Contemporary Artists, Schoeni Art Gallery Ltd., Hong Kong, 1997, p.17

    「〈標準家庭〉的創作,立足於特定的現實文化背景,選擇獨生子女三口之家為題材,通過多元的繪畫手法,平鋪直敘的描述以提示這個時代最具大眾化的樣板模式,並對其模式的種種信息做多方面敏感的考察──生活樣式,服飾特點,遺傳信息,乃至家庭組織形式的現狀與未來。

    我一直以旁觀者的姿態關注現實生活中的一切有趣而迷人的精神現象。

    繪畫給我異樣的感覺。啊!」
