Editorial Comment

"SONGS FOR A SEASON Hojun Song's exhibition"

In June, a breeze makes me recall nostalgia to nature that has been lying in my subconsciousness.

Without realizing it, I've found that brown bare branches that had light green buds already begin to be decorated with green leaves.

Artists are hardly aware of a changing season while immersed in their artistic world, and then, suddenly one day they feel it like those who feel homesick out of blue.

It is not difficult to witness that people repeatedly destroy nature in the name of development and easily forget its generosity even though we often find ourselves begging help of nature desperately.

Beauty is everywhere, but hard to be discovered. Only love can discover it.

Hojun Song never fails to show caring to even a small unnoticeable tree and embrace it in his paintings with exceptional structure.

The works displayed in today's exhibition are a series of trees which bring a home to us how generous nature has been.

Songs for a season his works are singing are echoing in our heart with a superb sense of color and unique structure.

Artists' creativity are said to be borne by their love and respect of nature.

What is found in reality can be a source of art. However it can't be art itself. It can become a work of art only when it is imbued with an artist's rich emotion.

We can't use a tree as a lumber without trimming its branches. Likewise, we can't achieve artistic ambition without toil and moil, which we learn from nature.

If we stick with what we pursue slowly and patiently, we can surely cherish nature's magic in our paintings such as breeze passing through tree branches and water sound whispering through valleys.

I'd like to congratulate Song for holding this exhibition and hope him the best of luck.
