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.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
