Over the years…

Rural road at dusk

My life as a teenager:
Carefree

Grey sky over dark mountains

My life in my 20s:
I was forced to select my career and I experienced inner conflict, and a car accident nearly killed me.

My struggle with my dark life and awakening

My life in my 30s & 40s:
Getting married, giving birth… a turbulent life

White clouds in blue sky above countryside

My life in my 50s:
I let go of everything and keep calm.

I’m willing to live the rest of my life beautifully.
My small wish is to harmonize with everyone.

My Portrait Concept

I tried to express my busy daily life and my mind, but my hands and head can’t keep up! My arms and legs are busy – following the hustle and bustle. 

I’m really busy in my mid-50s. There are so many things to do, so many things to want. I don’t know how the day goes. I almost died in a car accident in my mid-20s and I thought the rest of my life, which was given by the Lord, should be without greed. I had time to think of death once again because of Yoonseon’s death. Also, I thought about the health of my family and how I should spend my old age, and the absence of me or my husband. I should love more. 

I want to express through my portrait that my head and feet move like a machine in my busy daily life and my heart is empty.

Artist Statement

I want to make heart-warming art.

I believe that art should make people feel love.

Yeonsu

I want to empathize with people.

Why is art important? Because art can imprint many things rapidly and deeply.
