      *The Spirit() of Sewing, the Whereabouts of the Thread().
       
      Several years ago, there was a time when I was embraced in a strange shock when I went to see the private exhibition of Kim Bo-ra, which was held on the alleyway next to Gimmyeong Publishers the lines() were replaced with thread sewing. In painting, if the face() is the earth, the line indicates its form, that is, the spirit. The color, which represent the emotion, is what comes next. One can agree on such reasoning without much difficulty, if one analogize why the paintings of artist Park Su-geun were consistent on its gray colors from what kind of reality he had to live in. That is the “real” Korean emotion. When the lines that used to be drawn with a pencil becomes replaced with sewing, it enters into a different dimension one returns to the emotion of the beads of sweat and tears, from the time when one’s sister or mother used to sew the clothes, stitch by stitch. Here, the line, the color, the form, and the emotion are all entirely melted into one. When her artwork is brought outside, it does not just quit itself at sewing on the paper or canvas; it also sews up the branches and even the empty spaces between them. It is admirably beautiful.
