Butterflies are rich in imagery. They can symbolize love, freedom, and even good fortune. The works created by Qionghui Zou are endowed with aesthetic value and significance beyond the natural world. Just as Freud divided human character into "id", "ego" and "superego". Qionghui Zou's Dreaming Butterfly series, with abstract butterflies as the main body, interweaved with various memories and consciousness of human beings, reflecting the free ID. Qionghui Zou's Transformation Into Butterfly series discretizes and deconstructs the form of butterfly, reflecting the extricated superego. Based on Hegel's description, the two series of Dreaming Butterfly and Transformation Into Butterfly achieve a unity of reconciliation between the individual human nature (ego) and the universal divine nature (superego).
