In Li Zi's philosophy, there is not a distinct dividing line between good and evil. This concept is also reflected in her works which contain no detailed explanations of historical background or personalities of characters, even the boundaries of sex and the sexual orientations are intentionally omitted. This lenient attitude of hers strengthens her awareness and genial forgiveness of the distress of any vulnerable group, may they be homosexuals, indifferent urban dwellers suffering from each other's coldness or ignorant barbarians without beliefs or religious convictions. The tragic description, mingled with Li Zi's typical grave selection of colors, is deadly but hard to resist. In this contradictory state of mind you could even detect a slight sense of self-pity, which originates from the artist's sensitive observation of the common human experiences.
