Jeju’s oreum (volcanic cone), which resemble our mothers’ arms, are bloomed with redness and life. Red is also the predominant theme with the small shrub pyracantha, which bears small red-colored fruits every fall.
Painter Lee Mi Sun — who focuses on the color red as an indicator of passion, affection, and creativity — highlights pyracantha as being a perfect metaphor to capture the universe and its idea. Lee uses this as the basis for a exhibition, ‘Dan (red)’, opening tomorrow on Jeju.
Augmenting this creative red theme is the friendliness of Jeju, which is typified by the number of sparrows on the island. The friendly nature of Jeju opens its door to everyone and offers a peaceful atmosphere.
You will see the exhibition on the redness of Jeju nature from Oct. 26 to Oct. 30 at the Jeju Culture and Arts Center, Gallery 2.
