About The Artwork

It is an expression of human poems immersed in reflection on nature. I love Marcel Proust novel “ In Search of the Lost Times “. My hobby is to read novels for a long time, In the meantime I came across this phrase. I felt like I was the protagonist of something special about this passage. Marcel, who appears as the main character in [Search of Lost Time], walks in the garden with a friend from the book. The phrase right below is an excerpt from a scene . “The appearance of Marcel like that was truly mysterious. The way he looked at the rose was a picture of nature, art, and life being completely united, and his entire existence was immersed in a state of water, with the intersection of insight and passion. It was very profound." I often say to myself that color is not just color, but the essence of something. I've been fond of seeing egg yolks since I was a child, because the yellow color was so beautiful that it was gathered in a thin film, and I put my story in that round egg yolk and loved it. I knew how to share a deep and intimate connection with small, insignificant things. I also try to feel the intimacy of seeing things in my relationships with people. I tried to express delicate sensitivity and kindness in the landscape shown in this painting. I truly admire what he said. { Marcel Proust / Quotes } The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. The only paradise is paradise lost.

" Noble simplicity and Great silence imply history and existence. I'm constantly digging for that quiet place. " I was born in Seoul and have loved drawing since I was a child, so I honed my skills in representation, perspective and depiction for a long time. I majored in Western painting at Sungshin Women's University in Korea and went to graduate school to specialize in painting. For two years, I imitated the light of Post-Impressionism and gradually developed into abstract painting. While attending graduate school, I copied or studied Bonnard, Monet, Kandinsky, and Bartok (music). Then, I am convinced that I have to go with pure formative beauty until now, and as a philosophical approach, I am working with a baroque exaggeration and continuity as well as an exploration of what human play is fundamentally. I want to talk about human freedom with tension orchestrated around a few bold actions while being conscious of off-screen. The gesture of my brush in the painting is a part of my baroque taste, as if one day, I painted it as if I was longing for a dramatic connection between the past and the current event. In the middle, I came to associate a landscape with clarity and boundaries, and the landscape tried to become a piece of music by arranging and connecting accumulated memories on a flat surface with colors.
