Artist Chung Park
The outdoor gallery continues to grow. These two new works help tie in different corners of the property and add to the overall aesthetic of the house. They complement the natural surroundings better than I could have imagined. The pictures don’t really do them justice!
First, we have the Ruddy Kingfisher by artist Eric Davis. Nothing about the subject matter or placement is random. Anyone involved in the birding community in Korea (all 10 of us!) knows we’ve had a returning Kingfisher the last two summers. It’s significant because it’s the bird that really got me to open my eyes and ears and look up at all the wildlife in the trees. Bird watching also happens to be a great accompaniment to day-dreaming and sipping makoli, so ties in well with the other activities common around the house.
