The development of Taiwan's local art movement in the 70s progressed from literary world to the art world. More and more artists seek out rural subjects as a consequence of nostalgic theme. Huang Ming Chang uses photorealistic manner to illustrate Wind in Rice- Rice Field Series. Huang Ming Chang described his inspiration with the following, “It was my playground when I was young, there were frogs, tadpoles, and butterflies. I found endless treasure in the paddy." His works are more than a depiction of childhood memories but a passionate yearning for nature and its land. The rice field would connect the houses with nature; it is an artificial nature with wild treasures. This painting was created in 2005, through the captivating tones and shadows; it composed the progression of rice field in the paddy vividly. For this particular painting, Huang aimed to keep it direct and simple. The trend of new replacing the old in modern era became his main concept, at the end, artists will still believe in their central ideas, through eyes he composed his pieces with sincerity, persistency but also delicately.
