This “Eyeth Dance” painting is the composition or arrangement of dancing figures is reminiscent of Henri Matisse’s painting of The Dance I (The first, preliminary version is Matisse's study in New York City that I saw them with my parents when I was young. 
In 2013, I was in St. Petersburg and saw Dance in the second version. It inspired me to paint Eyeth Dance that it represents Deaf Home because of we share sign language and Deaf identity.
