The coronavirus is still not under control and the future remains uncertain. There is still no sign of the coronavirus being settled, and the future remains uncertain. I feel as if I am trapped in a dark place, suffocating. I want to free myself from such a state, if only for a moment. The black canvas is a metaphor for my current state, which is like a darkness with no end in sight. As I listen to the beautiful melody of the piano and feel the movement of life through dance, I paint the colors one by one on the canvas. The fusion of these colors is a process of regaining the lost radiance of humanity and everyday life. At some point, the darkness dawns and is replaced by a light full of colors.
