It’s already been pointed out above that if there’s one word to characterize the artistic achievement of Suh Kyoung Ja, it is to have created the color tonality of her BLUE as well as the emotional tonality, which pervade through not only the entire painterly space-time of her canvas but in all her works, VERY EVEN.
Only in a state of Meditation, not while consciously meditating, can one empty his or her mind in the state of utter calmness, is this person capable to recognizing his or her true potential which has been there as latent forces.
It is to discover his or her own spiritual seed, as the lotus seed does, which then is his or her responsibility to nourish and bring to full blossom. Since each human person has his or her own uniquely configured latent potential force field, born hard-wired, as it were; each human person can only be unique.
Indeed, it is not just with human beings, but also with any every thing in this world that is all uniquely configured and has unique characteristics of some kind. Thus no two stones are the same, as a good stone cutter or sculptor is well aware. Well, what about a stone, any stone?
In conclusion, another aspect of Suh Kyoung Ja’s(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)artistic achievement is to nudge people, her viewers, to take different attitudes towards any each thing-ly or non-thing-ly thing in the world from that objectified power relationship, pervasive in our technological modern civilization.
Instead, she tries to guide them to relate to each thing-ly thing as well as each non-thingly-thing in a mutually respectful and concerned relationship, respecting the integrity and autonomy of each thing for its own materially and/spiritually configured specificities, held tightly as its latent potential force.
