From the artist herself, “Silk Fish: Swimming in Air”, is “a tribute to my Grandmother and Mother Silk Fish And silk Scroll Paintings. A small bell called a 풍경. “Pungkyung” – hangs under the eaves in a Korean Zen Buddhist temple. Under the bell is a fish-shaped ornament, seeing these as a child when I visited the Zen temple with my grandmother. It contains the Buddhist teachings to stay awake like the fish that never sleeps, eyes perpetually open.”
