Works by Fu Zhongwang reflect his long-term use of wooden blocks and exploration to present them in various manners. He adopts centuries-old mortise and tenon sunmao joinery structures from classical Chinese architecture as a signature of his work, while he discusses the encounter between traditional culture and modern civilization. When assembling those wood structures, he hints at the complexities of people's emotions and interpersonal relations.

In his oil paintings, Qi Haiping vividly presents the vibrant, layered texture of the ink strokes of calligraphy, overwhelming his audience with an eruption of energy. In between the dancing lines, he reinterprets the rhythmic sense of calligraphic writing, through which he has built a link between the Chinese and Western arts and a sense of abstraction.

Xu Hong the exhibition curator says that, in the displayed works, one will see the drive of artists' "preferences, impulses and wishes", as well as a mirror of their "confusion and doubts". One will also see in the artworks a close resemblance to everyday scenes, but they will be revealed to "the true core of art as a means to reflect on, sometimes rework, the collective material and spiritual life of people".
