As time passes, she thinks that living energy is beauty. That qi(氣) is deeply related to the life of a beautiful artist who embraces fragrance. Since the artist's life is directly reflected in the work, the various lives themselves are positioned as the work. Her artwork is a story of diverse life that expresses the shapes that appear over time with water droplets symbolising vitality, dynamic and lively images. This is dissolved in the work, feeling the vitality of life and at the same time being reborn as a message of support for overcoming the darkest times. She hopes this will lead the viewer to feel that energy and be moved by it. Her pieces are currently in progress amid changes in form and content.
Kim Young-ja is famous for her lyrical sentiments.
There is her cherished time, a thrill of first love, a pinky mountain and a yearning for the good old days in childhood in her works while a sense of vitality is from the colours of violet and blue. The theme of her art world lies in time lively and mine. ‘lively’ is a series of works delivering a message of thrill of the first encounter while ‘mine’ is an expression of harmony between water drops and women though the world is born anew.
One might feel a sense of tenderness, pure, peaceful, splendid, feminine yet strong and dynamic in her works. Sharing a beautiful memory and a journey to find one’s own life is like a gift for everyone. In her artworks, water, circles, water drops and women have a common destiny expressed through abstract and representational.
She also uses reconstruction of formative, experiment and movement of colours in order to deliver harmony and future-oriented power.
