Softly and Tenderly

2013, Oil painting, 40"w x 56"h

I love light. “And God said, ‘Let there be light’” (Gen. 1:3). It was the moment that light was first created. I believe there is nothing new under him, but my heart is refreshed every moment I look to the light. Light cannot hide in the darkness.

“I didn’t know that I was in the darkness. After the candle was lit up, ah…I realized I was standing in the darkness.”
—Silenced (Korean book, 2011)

When the match was lit, a young girl realized she was in the dark. A small light was all it took for her to realize this. Through my painting, I hope the viewers will find the light in their minds, like the stars falling down, to reach to the corals in the dark, deep sea.
