This series expresses the loneliness that everyone in the world experiences for the first time through the waves of the sea due to COVID-19. The white waves crashing on the beach are reminiscent of a mask that repeatedly covers a human face, adding to the frustration. However, the tip of the wave like a white mask is drawn in the shape of a flower painting, symbolizing hope. Beautiful flower paintings drawn with the brush of waves on the canvas of nature are the human desire to be happy. Waves are used to express the inner thoughts of humans hidden in the mask.
