This work expresses our loss in society. By using brushstrokes and geometric patterns, it forms certain rules and restrictions in the painting, abstracting the stereotyped concepts and cultures that we have to disseminate in society. Those of us living in the city inevitably feel lost by these social rules, which is especially reflected in the hollow and even disturbed images of the
characters in the paintings. It forms a silent indictment of social norms, established concept, and even more, a desire for rebellion and resistance.
