《榮枯之間系列（一）》選擇以新埔林氏問禮堂為題材，「問禮堂 」為林家的堂號，它是一棟沒有被保護的古蹟，其殘破的白灰牆面露出內層土埆牆，大體上仍完整的建築可以看出客家建築的樸質個性， 而環境仍延續《存歿之間（一）》所出現過的泥地土石，玻璃瓶則用破裂的形像加上玻璃碎片，意喻失去保護的建築將逐漸毀壞消失，就連藤蔓也悄悄的爬上來了，天氣則安排在風雨欲來的黃昏時刻，使得畫面中的傳統建築更顯得孤立無援。
This series of paintings uses two similar compositions, considering the weather, the environment, the traditional building itself in Taiwan, the integrity of the glass, and many more to present the traditional architectures of Taiwan in different environments of the current state.
The first piece was painted with nicely preserved historical environment and the other with rundown historical environment, to show the vast difference between a preserved site and non-preserved site. One of the paintings in “Between Prosperity and Loss” collection, featured “XinPu Lin’s Auditorium”. It is one of the historical buildings that was not being protected. Hence Chen Xiu Wen painted the walls with cracks and showing the vines climbing all over the building, the stormy weather came during the twilight moment, making the screen in the traditional building even more isolated.
The second piece has featured “Liu’s ancestral temple’s hall” as the theme. In the painting, we could see glimpse of the ancestry memorial area, which was preserved beautifully. The glass bottle was also intact as a new image, the weather was arranged in the blue skies, all the elements were pointing to the traditional building by the proper preservation and attention, while our unique human meaning and historical value, life culture and memories, also have been preserved.
