The collection used the landscape in Xue’s hometown as the backdrop. Xue instills his emotions and feelings into the haystacks and regards the haystack as himself, and the sun and the field are his father. He dedicated Haystack the first collection in the series “Looking for Paradise” to the memories of his father. Xue said that they worked side by side on the field from Sunrises to Sunset to make the haystack. He put thick layers on the canvas to create the solemn effect with expressionism. But the tone is full of changes, with multiple layers, sometimes calm, sometimes turbulent. The painting reveals his inner world, and he evolves himself into my canvas, from which one can see his calmness, sadness, as well as joy.
