The present work is an elegant and exquisite example of Yuxuan Liu's sculptural paintings. The artist's belief in the potential to unveil the essence of humanity from lifeless objects compels her to meld various mediums into the sculptural paintings, crafting a virtual ambiance through semi-realistic object depictions and subtle background treatments. Most of the time during her artistic process, Liu carefully controls the composition of a painting, shaping it just as she envisions it. However, at times, something interesting spontaneously emerges within the artwork itself, like the little lamb in the present painting. As the artist paints, at some indeterminate moment, an intriguing gaze appears on the lamb. Such moments leads to a transient state as though the object within the painting momentarily communicates with the viewer. Simultaneously, Liu is captivated by the process of engaging in silent dialogue with the artworks while viewing them, much like having a conversation with herself. This is perhaps why the artist seldom paint people, yet most of her works possess a "portrait" quality.
此件作品是刘宇轩雕塑绘画创作中的一个优雅而精致的范例。艺术家相信从无生命的物体中揭示出人性的潜力，驱使她将各种媒介融合到雕塑画中，通过半现实的物体描绘和微妙的背景处理来打造一种虚拟氛围。在她的创作过程中，刘宇轩在大部分时间都会仔细控制绘画的构图，使其与她设想的一样。然而，有时 —— 像现在这幅画中的小羊一样 —— 一些有趣的东西会自发地出现在作品中。当艺术家作画时，在某个不确定的时刻，小羊脸上发生了一个引人入胜的眼神。这样的时刻导致了一种瞬时状态，就好像画中的形态开始与观众进行交流一般。与此同时，刘宇轩着迷于在观看作品时与其进行无声对话的过程，就像同自己对话一样。这也许就是为什么艺术家很少画人，但她的大部分作品都具有“肖像”的特质的原因。
