Under the thick brushes of Liu Weijian's paintings, a hazy melody always emerges. According to him, ancient poetry either "holds things to speech will" or "expresses lyrically through scenery", with "objects" and "scenes" occupying respective positions, whereas "will" and "emotions" are typically secondary. In comparison to the social tidal wave, life is small, and the two are unlike, much like the contrast between the expansive landscape and the miniature figures in landscape paintings. Regardless of a person's happiness or sadness, the landscape, and the world remain unchanged. The environment and the corporeal world are neither welcoming nor scorning. The painter can imbue the painting with his own warmth or apathy, which is subsequently passed on to the observer. This is the provision of caring amongst individuals.
