Flowers and bizarre rocks produce for the painting a mystical and elegant atmosphere, which is also depicted in a series of other works.
He moved from Taipei to Yokohama in the second half of 2018. A change in the environment bring new feelings in a subtle way. This work was just finished at that stage and may show similar but somewhat different clues to the previous one in a vague fashion.
