About the artwork:

The water-based technique using water as the medium shows the moist and sweet taste of strawberries. The textures of strawberries, tin foil and glassware are in contrast, and the scattered objects have their own postures under the projection of the afternoon sun, presenting a spiritual residence of a better life.
