In today's world of information explosion and material flooding, the works of art created by artists are constantly being submerged in this material world. Although the works created by the artists have spiritual connotations, these works are ultimately expressed in terms of matter. On the surface, the current society pays more attention to art than before, but our audience is still more attracted to "WeChat" or "Taobao" because they bring more information and faster time updates. It can better meet the psychological needs of the people nowadays. As a result, the status of art in the public mind will face increasingly low embarrassment, the audience of art works is less and less, and the market prospects are not very optimistic, especially the artistic creation of self-expression is more difficult for people to accept. .

In the face of such a reality, is there any future for art? Is there still a need for artists to continue their creation? At present, many artists have begun to reduce their expenses by reducing the size of the studio and away from the city center in order to continue to maintain their creation. Although the cost of rent and the like has been reduced a little, the artist's creation costs have increased due to the general increase in prices, and the artist's energy has been consumed more. Moreover, although the processing methods in China are relatively convenient, due to the rise in artificial prices, artists who have completed their work through external processing have to pay more.

Is there a better path for artists to continue to do some handmade works in a small space, and use free materials, even waste, to freely express their own thoughts, feelings and life. Cognition? I believe that some artists at home and abroad are already practicing this concept, so this exhibition is not new, but it can make people see that there are still many artists who insist on manual creation, and the cost is not very high.

The environment we are in and the various problems we face always remind us that we must return to the originality of art. I personally think that one of the manifestations of originality is to rely on the hands and life that God gives us to experience and use the materials that are made by us to create. So, to some extent, we will get out of the material predicament and also create and survive art. The state brings a better solution.

I hope this exhibition can give some inspiration to the artists.
