About Kye Sook Park
Born and bought up in South Korea, Kye Sook Park graduated from Dongguk University in Seoul with an MA in Education and a BA in Fine Art. Most of her work in oriental painting reflect the feelings of the artist and emphasises the themes of images, rather than drawing the object as it is. As well as emotions, the spaces left untouched are very important in Korean painting.
Park's work mainly expresses the moving world of human life using rapid sketching for capturing those precious feelings at the very moment they occur. The essence and philosophy of India ink are expressed as well as varieties of pencils and brushes to represent positive and negative.
New Friend 
Oriental watercolour on rice paper
Donated by the artist, 2007
In New Friend the road represents Park's life and the trees can be seen as the people she encounters, friends and family. She and her friends are then able to share a mutual appretiation of the view over which they look.
