Growing up in South Korea, I enjoyed hiking and exploring its great wooded and mountain areas. This exhibition brings together wooded landscape paintings I have created in recent years. Some are Texas landscapes while others are created from my imagination, but the trees and forests evoke fond memories of my childhood and feelings of calm and solitude. My intention is to capture the beauty of the woods by layering watercolors on rice paper. Watercolor paintings created on rice paper provide a unique rendering of the beauty and textures of the woods, and they reflect my love for the colors of wooded nature.
