Fang is always inspired by nature and Chinese Taoism. Vanity is a series of works relating to incense, that the fragrant of incense can be appreciated at the same time with the artworks. “The basic idea of the Taoist was to enable us to realize that, since human life is really only a small part of a larger process of nature, the only human actions which ultimately make sense are those which are in accord with the flow of Nature — the Tao or the Way. “ FANG Laidong said.
