"Youth" is interpreted in colorful ways as wood, resin, painting, and plastic. LEESANG ART Co. (director Lee Sang-mi) holds "Aquamarine: Youth" with the birthstone of March. LEESANG ART Co. in Seorae Village, Seoul, holds back-to-back "strange exhibitions" from November 2018 to October this year. These exhibitions are held every month under the theme of that month's birthstone. LEESANG ART Co. wants to offer modern people gem-like art and gem-like time through an exhibition of artists who polish themselves to become gems that produce special light. In this exhibition "Aquamarine: Youth," four artists who are active in various media such as painting and sculpture, Kim Soo-yeon, Park Jung-yoon, Park Ji-hyun and Heo Jin-ho, will present works on the theme of youth. Aquamarine, a stone symbolizing eternal youth and joy, is a combination of water and sea, and as its name suggests, has the blue color of the sea which purifies people's minds and hearts. From long ago to modern times, many people covet to youth. The youth they desire is not just physical since the benefits and meanings of youth are range widely and are fascinating. "Young people laugh for no reason, but that's one of the biggest attractions they have," said Irish playwright Oscar Wilde. What is youth that has the power to make people smile for no reason? Artist Kim Soo-yeon uses enamel as her main medium to express the texture of glossy photographs. Memory always faces the past, having her look back in time, tells her that the most beautiful time is youth and childhood. The spring and young sprouts in the artwork resemble the image of youth. It is difficult to know what sprouts will be in spring and so you should not easily judge whether they will become trees, grass or flowers. This is in the same vein as judging what a child will do when he or she grows up and what kind of person he or she will be.
