These plants are similar to cameos, also the boats are like floating on the plants, which makes audience radiate a sense of illusion. Occasionally, elements of the second world war of these paintings express the artist’s interpretation, thinking and attentions; and extend his understandings of the relationship between individual and group as well as history and present with his painting language.
Through the proportional relationship of his painting, where the sea level and horizon have a sense of depth visually. The work Fold was created when the artist thought the painting should be up-sided after he finished painting the roaring sea level.

In the end, these clouds were kept and he painted the endless express way under such the background.
