Ok Sang Lim, he simply and continuously put the daily topics like these, people, land, food, family, suppresion, labour, flower, alienation, liberation and plaza into his artworks.

If someone ask me to put the points, which these narration and artworks are heading to, into one, I would like to say like this even there might be other ways to say.

The counter art to the routinization of rebellious.

His artworks disclose the truth and rebuild the healthy life by countering the rebelluous things which are routunized by the era as Korean wrestling. (omitted)

<Here, White Flower>, mixed media, 776X259cm, 2017 <Here, White Flower>, SuJung Shin(Literature Critic, a Professor of MyungJi University)

With the exposed branches , the mountains are connected as like cutting off and cut off as like connecting each other.

The white paper flowers are assembled together and are scattered. Therefore, they became tens of thousands and they become the on by uniting themselves. (omitted)

It could be okay that it is the InWang Mountain or the SamGak Mountain or the NackSan Mountain or BookHan Mountain. It would be good that it is not them which I mention above.

It would be okay that it is Seoul or the place where we would never find in the ground.

It would be okay that it is the roar which encircled the plaza of GwangHwaMoon in the winter of last year, or it is also okay that it is the wish which we dreamed of in long years. (omitted)

When I imagine the scene which Ok Sang Lim is in front of this painting, my throat is chocked. Until thesedays, he have tried to express the powerful protest and the sharp satire toward the reality.

He wanted to be the reality and trensend it.

He was the abstrative as well as the figurative.

He was the mind as well as the body. (omitted)

The world of the painting is the condoleces of Ok Sang Lim to the altar of pain, despair, joy and blessing for the world we dream of.
That is why my throat is choked.

I am removing the real emotion with the colorless and odorless face.

The sorrow, which cannot be hidden, should be disclosed as the opend bag. (omitted)

When the looks of today by you and me, engraved into the wall of the soil, someone will listen to us. Our looks, carved on the wall, will be the philosophy, will be the poem and will be the story for children.

<The landscape>, steel, 900X270cm, 2011 <The landscpae>, written by Chang Jae Lee(movie director, professor of Jungang University)

How can I select the one piece among the artworks of Ok Sang Lim?

I cannot find the answer for that.

I would say he is the total artist of humanities in this generation if I say the one word with borrowing the position from the documentary director as I am.

There is a nature's cry to overcome the history, the human history and the contemporariness in his artworks.

Therefore, even the layman as like me, can feel or at least feel his artworks.

The reading is could be insult to him. However, the gimlet of his humanities is so sharp in his artworks.

His gimlet makes blind to read as like braille. His gimlet has the power makes someone participaes into his artworks. (omitted)
