People take medicines to fight illness in the first place. “Illness" and “medicine” go hand in hand, and are dependent on one another. Pills are ubiquitous and common in our daily lives, but here, the pills are not only medical treatment, it also depicts people's desires, like a "panacea"; people rely on pills to meet the various needs of life, which leads to a better living. Where does the illness come from? What is the cure? This is exactly what the artist wants to explore. Taking pills is an extremely common behavior, but the faces in this series of portraits indicates pathological physiological reactions full of hunger, thirst and suffocation, thus revealing the depth and psychological complexity of the "disease". This illness is not a physical disease, it refers to the alienated living state of modern people and extreme psychological anxiety.

病了吃药,药能治病,“病”和“药”互相依附,天生一对。药片在我们日常生活中无处不在,司空见惯,但是作品里,“药”不仅仅是医疗治病,它更意指人的欲望,好像是“灵丹妙药”;人依赖药片满足生命的种种需求,以此获得更美好的人生。然而“病”从何来?“药”又是什么呢?这正是艺术家想要探讨的问题。吃药是一极为常见的行为,但是这组肖像里的一张张面孔展现了充满饥渴和窒息的病态生理反应,从而揭示“病”的深度和心理复杂性。此病非是肉体的疾病,它指向的是现代人异化的生存状态,以及极度的心理焦虑。
