As an object shaped by painting, foam is very painterly, visually strong, and interesting. The "vision" of visual art is still the most important. The expression of a painting element in the picture is of course not only a simple presentation of the visual, it has a deeper thinking. People's various social activities have produced many positive and negative effects, and the rapid development of society has also followed the bubble phenomenon. "Floating Life" uses the bubbles as a carrier to imply this phenomenon. The sense of form in this work is strong in contemporary realism.

泡沫作为一个绘画塑造的对象,它很富有绘画性,视觉感也很强,也很有意思。视觉艺术的“视觉”还是最重要的,有着作为一个绘画元素在画面中表达当然不仅仅是视觉的的一种简单呈现,它有更深一层的思考。人的各种社会活动产生了许许多多正面及负面的影响,社会的快速发展泡沫现象也随之而来《浮生》以一个人物洗头产生的泡沫作为一个载体,隐射了这一现象。这幅作品的形式感强当代写实的特征。
