Janice Ryu, Washington, DC Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement Painting, which I started out of curiosity and boredom, has brought me so much of peace, happiness, and self fulfilling moments. It helps me to isolate myself from the world I live in, and inspires me to reach to the blue sky.
There has been natural evolvement of thoughts; what I want to share with people I care; images that I want to project to the world, most of all, things and ideas that make me want to paint... I am inspired by all of warm heart felt messages and images, everything cliche, a very few friends of mine, endless and clueless imaginations and the very shallow things that please me. I want to share my ever fickle emotions, anxiety, eagerness, passion, solitude, and most of all, gratitude for everything I enjoy and desire.
In my own words, I am nothing but a sponge that absorbs everything affecting me emotionally, intellectually and again, emotionally, and I would like to share my own reflection of the moments with people I care.
During the day, I work at International Finance Corporation, Washington, DC.
