Yusaku's works can be deceptive, Sheng admits. ''Look at his works from a distance, or just upon casual encounter. They often look like a gentle stroke — by one brush stroke, one quick movement. But as you look closely, these large strokes disintegrate into tiny, vibrating, individual lines, painted by hand, one after another, over hundreds, sometimes thousands of times. That is the expression of his insight: revealing these vibrating lines that constitute the whole.''
