Re: Kim Sookang
I agree that her work, what little I got to see of it, is just so exquisite, and also just has this wonderful quiet, contemplative sort of beauty, or quality, to it-- hard to describe. She has an exhibit coming up in Philadelphia, next month. Although the work wasn't yet on the walls, I did get a chance to see some of it she'd sent, unframed, which the gallery owner was generous enough to show us. I was so impressed, I'm thinking of going back up there while the show is up, so I can see all of it.
As an aside, I'm glad to hear she's a nice person, too. ;) I always hesitate meeting artists whose work I love, or "meeting" them in the context of hearing them give a presentation, or talk. That's also true for authors whose writing/books I love. Sometimes, they are just as you might expect, or exceed expectations. Other times, they're such a major disappointment(!)-- to me, anyway-- that I often wish I'd never met them-- sometimes forever ruining my appreciation of their art (whatever their art is). So, I'm glad to hear that. :)

I had the pleasure of chatting with Sookang during Fotofest this year, and was able to look at a lot of her work. It is wonderful stuff. Sublime is one word that comes to mind. Very beautiful, understated and elegant. Plus she seems to be a really nice person. It is worth making some effort to see her work first hand.
