The watercolors in Dad’s Hands Are Smaller were created during a time when Wu’s father underwent a serious medical emergency which forced Wu to drop out of school and attend to his family. He began making the paintings, around 200 in all, as a way to keep his balance during a stressful time when days were spent in the hospital environment. When he returned to school, the experience of making the paintings allowed him a way to re-imagine his artistic practice as one rooted in helping people to see creativity as a resource open to everyone, not just people trained in art schools. As he says, “The story of art is in everyone.”
