Artist's Note

  I think the role of art is to re-examine ordinary daily life. We sometimes find clues to understand the world while looking deeply at trivial objects and the sounds. Ordinary people living a busy life cannot afford to oberve them and I think it's the artists who takes over the role. Rhee In Sook's work is a genre called 'still life painting' that embodies objects such as flowers, flower pots or vases, and bottles. Rather than aiming for the original genre, it is a metaphor of still life painting to aim for the silence and stillness of the objects and absorb their emotions. Objects of everyday life are re-examined by the formative experiment of horizontal arrangement that breaks away from the stable structure of the triangle and the solid hand techniques of the artist. The still life on canvas conveys psychological comfort. The still life paintings of Rhee In Sook, expressed in her own formative language seem to have a solid inner self. She studied in the USA from high school to college and her works are loved by a lot of people with the way how her works leave a quiet afterimage and the attention that catches the eyes of the people.
