It was on the way to church seven years ago, the very first Sunday morning, just a week after having arrived in America from Korea, that Kim encountered the Sycamore trees and heard their special message. Approaching the trees, she was overwhelmed by the beautiful, extraordinary shape of the trees. They looked like magnificent sculptures, lavishly branching out high in to the sky. To her surprise, these were the same trees – the ‘plane’ trees – which she had seen everywhere in Korea. In Korea, they cut off the branches of the ‘planes’ every winter so as to inhibit their growth to their own natural height. In America, the Sycamores are allowed to grow not only to their natural height, but also to develop and expand to their glorious and fullest potential. It was at that moment that she heard ‘the voice of the Sycamore trees’ speaking to her for the very first time: ‘Let your true Self blossom like me!’.
MRAC and RDC are excited to share the results of Kim’s creative journey so far and invite you to join us for the Opening Reception at the Roxborough Developments Corporation, 6111 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19128 on April 6, 2018, from 5 to 7 pm. The show continues until May 2, 2018.
