""This artwork depicts the feeling of wandering in a cold forest with snow-covered trees surrounding us and no paths in sight. Oftentimes, we find ourselves lost in life when faced with challenges, hardships, or even difficulties. However, we must continue to push forward with hope and perseverance to ultimately reach the light that breaks through the obstacles. In the midst of our blackest nights, we have to turn our eyes and seek out even the littlest of glimmers. In this way, we will then be guided back onto the right paths in life, recalibrating our direction once again."
