Cockscomb, the Flower of Healing

I and Another Myself
The artist puts fidelity to realism and naturalism aesthetics, was aimed at expressing an idea occurs in the mind by using nature. In addition, she used the formative colors and techniques, to present her painting that united by the essence of the Cockscomb works and the passion for the artist's life. Cockscomb, artist material selected works from recent several years, is the bowl that put her life. To living her life more than half a century runs her course in the women of the Republic of Korea, she felt the beauty of happiness, joy, accomplishment, as well as felt the trauma given by the injury, anguish, grief......

She is now looking gently at everything in an objective gaze, is projecting the Cockscomb with blooming passion, and expresses the homogeneity of artist and the subject. Under the hot summer sun light, Cockscomb is the flowers which have elegance, pride and a great sense of strength. At the same time, cockscomb exists in the most simple and familiar wild flowers with a low posture. Released energy from the feast of the Cockscomb turns out the story in the canvas as an creativity expression of the artist only. It is the ultimate goal of the artist to contemplate her life with art, and then to represent taking led to deep identity of her life.

Informel is about using tactile texture effect rather than optical illusion, Artist Kim Sook's work has character that shows optical illusion through tactile texture effect. Also, her brush works clearly shows both impressionism's improvising brush touch and calculated modeling. She focuses on materialization the sense on the canvas. Cockscombs she draw on the canvas highlights the vividness of flower and her paintings touches boundary of sculpture. It draws attention that her work goes beyond the limit of visual effect to tactile sensation and made a new property of matter. Cezanne's viewpoint on the three-dimensional body was a new perspective on securing the physical properties of the object. A new approach to the study of physical properties is meaningful as the way to pureness of painting. She crosses the boundary between realistic representation and new interpretation of material with her work. And she has built her own screen composition and formative language between maximization of visual pleasure and purity of contemporary art. Her new attempts with screen composition do not depend on representation of perspective. It is a reflection of the artist's inner self and the natural existence of the cockscomb is linked to the form of human life. The artist is showing a unique story by projecting the universality of human beings into a friendly material cockscomb.
