" The Scent of gold, which has everlasting love of 100 percent purity "
I have walked long way so far that has taken much time to pass through once thought close. That makes my way of art blossom as everlasting flower of love. It was over forty after closing down my business that I picked up the paintbrush for the first time. I left for America with my family in 1990 and began to study art fascinated with western paintings at art school. It was not easy to adapt myself to my colleagues born there because they been surrounded with educational environment inspiring creativity since childhood and it made myself move to develop my own originality.
I judged portraits and landscape were not competitive and went through a lot of trial and errors like searching for monk painting altar portrait of Buddha.
With those experiences, I came to confirm that gold was a suitable material combined with eastern sensibility in showing original work and have devoted myself to gold art.
My works of gold art contain humorous satire for life, money, love and honor experienced in human's life.
I hope happiness and richness will be forever through passing down gold art standing for eternality from generation to generation.
I would like to share my sensibility with all of you through everlasting love, pig of fertility and fruitfulness, Jesus Christ of grace and blessing, mother of devoted to family.
Lastly my personal goal and dream is to be remembered as artist who have walked my own way not following trend of the times and set the foundation for Korean art to enter the international community through my gold art.
