Title: Nature
Author: Sin, Hye
Abstract: For years, people have used art to transform images of nature into symbols of life, benevolence, reverence, creation, and death. In my life, nature means freedom. It has offered me meditation and power, and enriched my life. Perfect freedom is my ultimate goal. I have tried to express this in my art forms. Early in my life, I was not skilled at observation. I was not fully aware of many of the intricate details that can be found in the beauty of nature, although I was always surrounded by it. When I lived in Rochester, New York, the landscape had a great influence on my work. The environment opened my eyes to the details of nature. I had observed more closely the wind, birds, insects, lakes, streams, and leaves. I felt relaxed and refreshed during these visits to natural settings. My thesis reveals the ways in which I developed my understanding for nature. I am primarily interested in two characteristics of nature: the physical structure of natural forms and the intangible characteristics of air, wind, sound, smell and so on. The first thing I focused on was the physical characteristics of structure in natural form. These characteristics change every season and have everlasting beauty. Each form in nature has its own unique color, shape and texture. The "invisible" characteristics of air, wind, sound, and smell offered me a poetic sensibility such as happiness or isolation, which I conveyed in my art. My art works consist of metal pieces, jewelry, and paintings. Through them, I am expressing my feelings about nature.
