There is also a change in the outlines of other object. That is the outline of a tree's trunk is very refined, whereas the outline of other objects is rough as well as dull. This change makes me associate with 'sabi' that is remarked by the Japanese artists when they apply Zen to art.
Lines or forms depicted in the state of an empty mind, which must not maintain only the naturalness. A proper coexistence of both elaborateness and unskill, sharpness and dullness, which is the world of very 'sabi'. I see it adequate to mention the outline of those object's forms depicted by her from that point of view.
The world of Suh Kyoung-Ja's painting is very unique. In the paintings by her begun as a printing artist, it would be a natural phenomenon to look at the printing techniques intermittently.
She has pointed to represent her own inner images without regard to whether it were a printing or a painting, it is a noteworthy thing that the above expression methods are very deeply connected with those of the Abstract Expressionism.
Sometimes there is a work that has digested the technique of the Action painting, and sometimes there is a work that has been deeply fascinated by automatism.
But now what she has displayed a compromising style of mono-chrome and automatism techniques is another characteristic of her(서양화가 서경자,SUH KYUNG JA,서경자 작가,여류중견작가 서경자, 서경자 화백,ARTIST SUH KYUNG JA,徐敬子 作家,画家 徐敬子) paintings.
