In Sushi Bau’s first solo exhibition at MAISON ACME titled "SUSHIBAU SOLO EXHIBITION", he showcases nearly 20 pieces of works. Through this exhibition, he explores his personal growth and the origins of his identity, as a summary of one phase of his life. The main series of works represents the artist's observation of interpersonal relationships, emotional fluctuations, and internal conflicts. Using "fictional world" as a creative platform for "self-awareness", Sushi Bau seeks to find balance within his inner world, harmonizing with his "self", and documenting the relationships between "him and self, others, society, and art". By dissecting and exploring his roles through internal images, he gradually accepts different aspects of himself, both good and bad, coexisting with these roles. The interactive relationships and changing patterns among similar characters in his artworks create a metaphorical visual narrative, subtly alluding to the psychological states of people in their daily lives.

" 'Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?.' As I grow older, I can no longer hear my own voice clearly. It fades away amidst the vast crowd. Sometimes, I think that person is me, but when I turn around, it isn't. In this period of searching and doubting, I have lost myself in the sea of people. Everyone looks the same, including myself. I am forced to keep moving forward with the crowd, and unable to stop. All I can do is record everything I see before me."

In the summer of 2022, Sushi Bau began to learn to get along with himself through painting. He depicted his feelings about things around him and his relationships with others. They manifested as various characters, forming an endless, vast world that can never be fully recorded. Sometimes, He doesn't even know what the images inside represent. They just appear along with his state of mind. "Who is Sushi Bau?" Perhaps Sushi Bau is never just a specific character but a constantly changing and flowing condition. Perhaps all the characters he has recorded are him. They all look the same—no hair, no gender characteristics, no expressions, no eyeballs—just quietly doing their things."
