At the moment when I faced the work by Kyoung-ja, Suh, I received this instant impression that is incredibly tranquil and temperate.
I truly mean it when I say it. I have wondered how she could have done such a lovely work in the middle of this giddy whirl of modern life.

Along the turbulently changing trends of the world, we may hardly find a painting worthwhile for appreciation.
Moreover, although there are humongous amounts of art works coming out everyday, we rarely encounter with enjoyable works as in the care of lack of drinking water after a flood.
Regarding all these factors, I was so exhilarated to meet 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)work like finding an oasis in the middle of a desolate dessert.
It always feels good to face such a pure and innocent work rather than burdensome or overly-touched ones.
