Abstract

In the Song Dynasty in China far away from now, a famous Chinese ancient documentary novel collection- Records of Taiping Era showed up. It has been a total volume of 500 collections of short stories. Its content is rich and colorful, and almost all the legends and characters that have been circulated at the time have been recorded. I found 50 stories that I was particularly interested in from thousands of stories and reinterpreted them in illustrations with my own language. Each of these figures represents a different story with almost no similarities. Among them are legends, biographies, and the origins of animals and plants. Both the center part of each novel and a certain sentence have become the theme of my paintings, a scene, an element in the collection or even an entire content of the work can be concentrated in one painting.
