Ki, 氣(Qi) in Chinese, means energy or spirit. Those who do ‘ki training’ say that it is a process of emptying our minds through which we can create resonance with the energy of the universe in order to give positive effect to us. There are many types of ‘ki training’ such as ‘ki picture’, ‘ki dance’ and ‘ki treatment’.

Seo yujeong, the curator of the Seoul Museum, is famous for her ‘ki painting’. She explains that her works are made with the vitality and the wave of the energy in resonance with the essential energy of the universe; they deliver the energy of love, peace and happiness, and make our body and mind sound.

Q. Tell me about your work.

A. I hope my ki painting makes people happy and healthy. To make the most of the energy of my ki painting, home is the best place to put up one of my works because home is where we feel most comfortable. In fact, black hole is my main theme. Black hole gives me this concept of ‘we are the one’. When energy gathers together, it becomes explosively huge. One becomes two and two become four. Likewise, we gather energy each other to become one whole. In the same respect, I pour strong energy into my works.

Q. I heard you had an exhibition in Jeju Island last year.

A. Yes, and I had a good time. Many people visited the exhibition. People who are not familiar with the "gi picture" showed great interest. One visitor felt dizzy for a while because of the strong "gi" emanating from my "gi painting." My height picture is the result of my free will and brushwork from the energy of love, peace and happiness through prayer and meditation. Thankfully, all the works presented in the long-awaited solo exhibition were sold. Taking this interview as an opportunity, I would like to express my gratitude once again.

Q. What is the meaning of your works?

A. My works have this meaning to enliven dead cells through new start and new beginning. My works have no boundary but embrace everything because ‘ki’ has nothing to do with one’s religion, sex and race. Talking of religion, Christian has painting of Holy Spirit and Buddhism has mandala. For me, they are ‘ki painting’. Those who make ‘ki painting’ must not have any intention or greed in their mind but if it has a purpose they must pray hard and wish for blessing and health.

Q. I heard there's an exhibition in the U.S.

A. I'm happy to present my painting in a wider place as a good opportunity. All new works are prepared for this American exhibition. I'm both nervous and excited about how Gi-Gi-Gi-Gi will approach foreigners in the U.S., where various people are gathered. We've put a lot of effort into preparing for this U.S. exhibition, so please give us a lot of attention.
