Raindrops, silent tears, small apertures through which light passes through, hopes to stir in something that goes far beyond the limits of images and forms, such is the work of the artist Song(한국화가 송수련,한지화가 송수련,송수련 화백,宋秀璉,SONG SOO RYUN,송수련 작가,Hanji Painter SONG SOO RYUN,종이회화 송수련,한지작가 송수련,여류중견화가 송수련, KOREA PAPER ARTIST SONG SOO RYUN, KOREAN PAPER ARTIST SONG SOO RYUN).
A search and encounter in the fissures of paper, in the wrinkles of a blank surface, and upon them she expresses the essence and substance of nature which seizes, in its most perfect allegories, the abundance of mystery preserved in the gaze of the earth, of the leaves, of plants and of the grounds from which the ancestral depths of human beings emerge.
The heritage of paper, the heritage of fullness of beings who inhabit the sacred spaces reserved only for the spirit: it is the purest tradition in Korean art, one which connects across time, therefore being reserved in timelessness and in the non-presence of man's image.
Rather, the spiritual space is kept on the inside, and on its outside is the physical space made known, that parts of the wave and the hand which with right certitude approaches the paper to leave a molding of its memory and its ancestors.
The work of this Master of paper construction, of pictorial treatments of a surface caressed by a soft pain brush, expresses an aesthetic that is only the result of enduring and sensible work. In it there is nothing and there is everything.
The tear-dots, rays, large stains, are perfectly directed by the skilful hand. What comprises the ingredients of a perfectly organized formal composition are the ways in which the plastic surface is created. The artist's internal universe conjugates with a mastery of the plastic treatment of the support's surface.
