Suddenly! More and more snakes are coming at me!

Caught me, getting tighter and tighter,

I heard the sound of broken bones in my body,

Suddenly woke up, is a dream.

I got up in the middle of the night and washed my cold face, sobering my mind,

Decided to start drawing the dream,

It reminds me of Gu Cheng

It is said that he also got the inspiration of his dream

Write "the night gives me black eyes, but I use it to find light".

I'm trying to find this inspiration

In the Bible, the snake is Satan and the devil,

I've always been in awe of snakes.

So I remember my dreams with fear,

I seem to see a light,

There is a studio at the end of the light,

That was 20 years ago,

There is a young man who looks like a student

When I look carefully, that's me.

He is drawing a sculpture there.

It's a white sculpture,

It's called "laocon",

He is said to have offended Athena,

Was entangled by a snake sent by God,

At the same time, their sons were also entangled.

I stared at it for a long time,

It also stared at me for a long time.

A light,

Now, 20 years later,

I was alone in the middle of the night,

Painting the dream just now,

The wind outside the window blew by,

Like a god running on the water.

I stepped up the speed of painting,

It condenses the yuan God,

Create this painting [Snake].

It's my "laocon"

I am its "God".

I didn't create it.

It created me.

[creation description]

This is one of the works of my series of paintings [Yang Shuai's painting art]. The first draft was created in the most difficult epidemic period in 2020. At that time, the baby project had 20 campuses in Beijing, all of which had stopped operation for nearly nine months. The huge cost and mental pressure made people reflect deeply. The revised draft was created in October 2021, which was also a sensitive period, Uncertainty becomes the norm and is reflected in the works, which is the psychology at this stage. This painting was bought at the price of 110000, making the dialogue between this painting and my heart a part of the growth of my artistic creation.
