Artist at work : Misim Song

The mood from the artist Misim Song has recalled me Buddhism without reference to her religion or philosophy. And it was confirmed when I visited her place where the open centre garden was offering a sense of calmness with the minimal decoration of  bamboos and a Buddha head statue. In that garden, the Korean traditional paper ‘Hanji’ had been prepared and was laid for drying before proceeding the long enduring labour for her art work component, rice. Each grain of rice would be coloured individually and posed and glued on to the canvas, one by one. It is natural that the completed works give me the sense of meditation.
