In contemporary art concepts, artists of different cultural backgrounds will have their own unique experimental process and artistic creation methodology because artists need to create unique works and be loyal to their own feelings in creation. This article has studied twowell-known artists' works and analyzed the visual perception of the materials in their works, the contrast between their works and reality, and the changes in their works.I try to analyze how these artists bring a sense of instability to the audience through stable works in the space. Theseartists used their unique artistic concepts and emotional cognition and experience to produce great works with unique materials and methods. At the same time, they also raised uncertain issues related to environmental protection, urban development, environmental changes, and personal survival.
