Water has been an object of intense fear to me since childhood when I almost drowned to death in the rapids. I used to express water in dark colors and gloomy atmospheres reflecting such psychological traumatic memories. As time passed by, the images of water reflecting death and fear became thinner and another image emerged from the darkness. As I got older, I often fell into thoughts while staring through water. When I felt exhausted from the everyday job as a mother of three, water reflected not only my thoughts, but also drew other worlds on the surface. Calm and peaceful water healed my fatigued body as I wanted to meditate there and enjoy peace of mind. This inspired me to mirror the ripples of the shiny water through the paintbrush gliding through the canvas. I wish that my works would portray a quiet meditation and peace to anyone in the audience who is suffering from a strenuous life. My artwork represents how the water slowly became the Holy Water to heal my disturbed mind.
