Rexy Tseng comments on his work in relation to the Mind the Gap theme:

Reacting to the concept of a gap, the exhibiting works demonstrate the tensions between two entities. In “Two Men in a Jungle”, the work portrays two businessmen in the midst of bowing situated in a jungle background. The action can be interpreted as a sign of respect, reconciliation, or compromise. The gap between the two is an emotional charged space that may lead to something new or a resolution of a prior conflict. The gap is then an artificial distance, a security barrier, a ceasefire, an invitation to relationship, and a push-pull of powers. In “Summer Heat”, the work shows the closing of a gap; it is agitated, unstable, and even violent. It captures the reverse emotions of “Two Men in a Jungle”, as two entities seek to overcome the space between them with force. It is still a push-pull of powers, but one that demonstrates the proprietorship of the gap rather than a mutual distancing.
