Introduction

 

I really appreciate the people whove helped me on my artistic journey.

The flowers and surrounding temple grounds have a rich historical importance in Korea. I am grateful to the abbot and monks, who helped me so much to have this exhibition.

 

In 2003, I personally initiated the practice of visiting Tongdo-sa, The purpose has been to seek out the ancient Maehwa as they blossom each spring. As I travel about the country painting, I make a point of visiting the beautiful Tongdo-sa. Each time I visit, I endeavor to represent the essence of the Maehwas beauty on canvas.

 

My Maehwa paintings reach beyond the mere aesthetic beauty of the subject, bringing to bear symbolic meaning, especially in the realm of Koreas emotional disposition: the noble character and strong discipline of the dedicated scholar.

It is easy to imagine the tree and its beautiful flowers as symbolic of struggle and lifes perpetual soldiering on. The act of blossoming is both gentle and forceful. The petals delicacy contrasts to gnarled boughs and rough twisted trunks. The Maehwa stretches toward the unreachable sky with an unyielding tenacity.

The Maehwa blossom season thrills me. This glorious spectacle fills me with a sobering appreciation. Often, I spend several minutes standing in front of the tree, contemplating its beauty and the emotion it stirs. In addition to the connotations of the soldiers spirit, the Maehwa touches me personally, reminding me of my hometown in spring. I think of my mother's love when I look at the blossoms inconceivably graceful form.

  

From late winter to early spring, the flower buds struggle to burst forth in profusion, until all of heaven and earth is embroidered with leaves and flower petals! The cyclical beauty of nature, the miraculous perpetual cycle of life, and splendid joy - all are present here.

The primary setting of The Maehwa Works, the grounds of aged Buddhist temples, nurtures the senses with the savor of the changing seasons, and infuses these paintings with a lively spirit.

Some of these works were completed in one sitting, while many of them were created over several years. Returning every year afresh to the same thematic connotations has led to many discoveries and added depth of meaning.

I hope that this exhibition will evoke contemplation with regards to the noble beauty of the plum tree. It is my pleasure to share the historical and symbolic significance of this hallmark of Koreas traditional culture.

Thank you very much.

Kim Chang Han
