She likes to study the Oriental mural in depth. The rigor of art is very important for her. Her works are full of emotion, vivid and memorable.

Her multiple works were exhibited at the Venice Pavilion at the 2015 World Expo in Milan. Her representative has "care", "Mazu" and "opera characters series" and so on.

The history of the fresco has a long history and is one of the oldest forms of painting. As early as the Paleolithic Age, the grotto paintings recorded the early activities of mankind.It originated in the human art to transform the walls and space. The theme is mostly naturalistic style, reflecting the spontaneous understanding of mankind and the earliest productive labor. With the daily prosperity of religious undertakings and the development of artistic forms, the producers are mostly official painters and folk painters. The subject matter reflects the mainstream culture of religion, history and mythology.

Early mural art was on the basis of the religion, but also created another very important "by-product”, that is the mystery of the screen. Art is derived from life, but must go beyond life to show its value. If art can not exceed the level of secular, can not purify the human mind, this art can not be called great. "Mystery" is the essence of the art of that era. The tangible picture represents the "existence” , and invisible mystery is "nothingness".Mystery makes the picture from limited access infinity, is also a lot of great works of art always floating a ray of mysterious reasons. This shows the infinity of God, but also demonstrates the infinity of human.

This exhibition is the record of Professor Wu Ming in the process of exploring. The author makes the work from today through the back thousands of years ago by adding the mystery of the picture. Standing in front of the painting to watch the audience as if to watch the works before the Millennium.
