The Word Sisters is a group of six poets who meet bi-monthly to write together and support each other's artistic practice. In January they read at Stonehenge Studios, and this February the Erickson Gallery has the honor of presenting a Word Sisters Poetry Reading inspired by the work of photographer Tracy Pitts.
Featuring the poems of Maggie Chula, Andrea Hollander, Donna Prinzmetal, Joanna Rose, Penelope Scambly Schott and Suzanne Sigafoos
THE INNOCENT EYE IS BLIND // HYUNJU KIM
I paint things on canvas. Things I paint now are images that I found on the internet. Things are various studies of old masters.
Things are what I see in my daily routine. And things are often my dreams.
I produce specific objects, oil on canvas, which possess certain pigments and techniques.
Paintings can be copies of photos. Paintings can be records of observation.
Paintings can be collections of abstract marks.Or paintings can be assemblages of all of these.
I aspire to understand and analyze my subconscious world in order to access ‘the real’ that I feel in my dreams.
Although my open eyes never see my internal world, I will learn how to see better though this daily practice.
