I went to the Gatov-West gallery and looked at art by Yireh Elaine Kwak. The title of Yireh’s work is Harmony & Discordance:Conflicting Landscapes. She gets the inspiration from real life experiences. They also come from abstracting ideas and based off memories. She is mostly an oil painter. I was particularly drawn to her work because I love nature and the outdoors.
The title of the painting in the picture is “Walk in the Park.” This was by far my favorite painting. This is a real view from her house. Her home is on a hill surrounded by nature. This picture reminds me of my hometown in Illinois. Lots of green and that is what I love about it. It looks like a golf course as well and I used to work on a golf course for 3 years so a lot of memories came rushing back as I was looking at the picture.
