Carving professional learning that he mastered the "shape of feeling." In his published works, we can feel vaguely that "the shape of feeling."

2008 summer, Large stretch heir finally found a long-awaited concept can leave the place. That is a personal exhibition in Shanghai Bund 18 Creative Center organized, in which the work "Echo Infinity" won the people's attention. With edible red paint on the white carpet depicting a flower garden is to attract attention of the audience, because the consumption of red paint with the artist's creation is probably no to those individuals only before or since a large volume one.

In the fourth floor of the Bund 18, when the elevator door slowly away coral, little candlelight behind the silhouette is stationary, the staff said please wait and then enter. A white channel, the ground littered with little colorful petals, geometric petals, like the girls to wear the dress. Several people have come out, the next batch of visitors can enter to visit.

Crouch closer look, because it is the color of natural mineral powder, it is bound to eventually collapse, will shift shape, color will be chaos, it would dilapidated. At the moment they are also a reflection of the light spot drops, and before long will be a blooming. But that's what the artist wants to get the outcome, our feet as he completed a destruction or rebirth, soft and quiet.

"Art is not only to show to everyone his own world, but also his world turned into a stage (space) to lead the people into." Thinking inspiration from the usual, but from previous years, only three hours a day Large sleep. "Creation is not really kept a good thing.
