Painter Pham Luc says: "The topic of war and battlefields has been regularly exploited. I want to show the life of those in the rear. Although they were not in the front, they experienced lives as hard as the soldiers. Despite the hardship, people in the rear maintained close family bonds and good neighborliness. I feel strongly about this topic because I want to help the younger generation nurture a sincere love based on their predecessors’ tradition."
