Kim, Mi Kyoung, Pure Ecstacy
Fruits of delight Kim's canvases are brimming over with such emotions at high tide as hope, gratitude, and joy. It might be difficult for those who have never experienced powerful emotions to understand her keen aesthetic sense.
She rapidly represents a thrill running through her veins as she watched the creatures admiring their creator. She successfully portrays the beauty and majesty of the divine world with heavenly but sensible colors, unconventional but graceful shapes, and simple but powerful compositions. We can discover 'the mark of sanctity' and 'the flame of glory' by looking at the creatures of the god. John Calvin said, "The exquisitely created world mirrors our god." Likewise, artists regard the nature not only as a living thing or an artistic object but also as 'an living work of art' which was gracefully made by the god.
Therefore, we have to look at all the things around us more carefully. Mi Kyoung succeeds to feel the pure ecstasy in the nature. She tries to reproduce 'the mark of sanctity' with beautiful colors. Also, she expresses in awe the magnificent world that was exquisitely created by the god. She has so good spiritual eyes that she can see beyond sight. Her works exhibit the rare beauty of contemplation and loftiness.
