    Art Description:

    This work is an oriental brush writing using a cursive style letter. Oriental brush writing is only expressed with ink and brush on paper, and while the ingredients are so simple, this writing contains the beauty of formativeness and rhythm and can express a writer's personality and psychology. It also does not draw specific objects, but simply symbolic letter composed of dots, lines and strokes, and needs the writer's high imagination, so it can be called abstract.

    In the case of brush writing, it cannot be modified due to its characteristics, if a small ink drop is splashed or even one dot is wrong, it cannot be corrected and should be discarded and reworked from the beginning, also since this work is based on traditional paper, so more careful attention is needed than other works. 1 cursive style letter has various meanings.

    This letter pronounced as "moo" has the meaning of dance, encouraging to gain energy, courage, cheer up, run or fly and etc, among these meanings, I applied "cheer up" to this work. When we are confronted with critical situation in our life, overcome of it becomes the foundation for growth and development of us, because in difficulties we learn to be stronger. Depression and lack of enthusiasm by prolong of covid-19 and economic recession, uneasy future, a sense of loss of goals, a series of despair and etc...Nevertheless, after winter, as spring comes and flowers bloom, our world will be brighten. Now, we must support and encourage to each other for overcome all current crises, this work is expressed to express this meaning.
