Shin So Young 2020, Mixed Media on canvas

32 W x 32 H x 0.1 in


Two differently-shaped wings forming a heart represents two different people meeting each other and producing happiness. A couple is two people, living in the same space at the same time, who can reach out their hands to each other. Because humans are imperfect beings with only one wing, they cannot fly far away on their own. If they belong with someone else, they will be able to fly far away with two complete wings.
