The LOOT exhibition ended last week at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC. While the exhibition was going on, I had to travel to NYC twice a week. Boy, was that exhausting! So I couldn't update my blog last week, and I am still catching up on work. But I would like to take some time to tell you about LOOT because it was rather successful!
First of all, I had a chance to meet so many wonderful artists from the Netherlands, U.S. and Korea! Without this opportunity, where could have I met these fabulous artists? I was so grateful to meet them and to have a show together.
Moreover, many interesting people came and talked to me. I was surprised that many people were interested in my work! Also, they really like to meet the artist in person. Some of them became my private collectors. What a wonderful opportunity! All that traveling was well worth the effort!!Some of my favorite pieces are now in the hands of private collectors, and also at the Museum of Arts and Design as part of their permanent collection. I am so thankful for the support! At the same time, I do have to admit that I miss my pieces. My pieces are like my babies, and so I get very attached to them when I get done making them. Unfortunately, I didn't even have a chance to take professional photographs of my new pieces. I feel empty whenever I am at my studio and realize that my pieces are not there. It feels as if a piece of my heart has been cut out. But thanks to your support, I have now been given another opportunity to create more wonderful pieces! This is definitely an encouraging moment. How ironic my life is!! I can't wait to see what life has in store for me next!
With my fabulous model and my dear friend, Mary Benyo.
