60.6 X 72.7 X 3.0cm Created on March 25, 2023 The theme of this painting is the whiteness of breath in the cold winter night sky. The breath is blown by the cold wind and changes its shape. Some are carried by air currents, others are diffused on the spot and disappear ephemerally. A sigh that comes out unintentionally when you are troubled. I exhale my anxiety and exhaustion along with the chill of the night in the cold night air. Is what we see beyond the white air hope? We visually captured and expressed this psychological situation.
