Bridge to Korea at International House

Bridge to Korea–A Global Gala Event Art Exhibit is on display from April 22-June 30 at International House with a reception on April 22 at 5:30 p.m. See Exhibits.

namsook kwon sueim koo

Namsook Kwon paints the wilderness because life is a wilderness.

This painting (right) started with the acacia tree she saw in Israel. The lives of people are depicted through the tree that grew so strong despite the harsh environment. They are the ones who desire freedom and peace. They are the ones who long for happiness in dreams and visions. No one can live alone in this world, but each person has to fight with oneself to survive. This is the message of the wilderness discovered through the painting.

Re-reading her diary over 30 years later, and reliving the moments captured in the pages –filled with happiness, sorrow and even pain–was an absolute thrill for Sueim Koo.

Today, the 50-plus-year-old artist is now creating landscapes (left) using the emotions she had felt as a teenage girl and recorded in her diary. Therefore, although she depicts landscapes, those landscapes lie beyond the geographic imagery itself. The process of choosing colors, defining shapes and patterns of rice papers is not about creating something esthetically pleasing. Rather, these are the means by which she reconstructs broken memories and seeks to recover her feelings.
