The painting by PU Jie embodied epitome of two eras opposed to each other. Behind the consumption culture exemplified by city ladies in lemon yellow and daily necessities, there laid portraits from Culture Revolution, unruffled and undecorated. Not affected by classical perspective, the artist juxtaposed figures and themes altogether on canvas, with sharp black outlines accentuating exceptional vitality which nevertheless conveyed the message of hurriedness, nothingness and uneasiness. Such arrangement was perhaps subject to misunderstanding as a certain relationship in comparison but its segmented appearance in fact determined the way this painting uttered. These images constituted the vocabulary, letters and symbols adopted by the artist in art expression and functioned to build the links between his experience and conception over the past decades. Speaking with poetic nuance, such emphasis achieved to erase the contrast and fight implied by images, which confused its viewers as if the memory was refreshed in the street of the time.
