Ku Ji Hoy, the Suncheon arlist who has mastered watercolor and takes viewers on flights of fancy via playful twisis of perspective and knowledgeable use of blank space, offers a vast wonderland in his latest work, lt takes years of practice to be able to make an expressive pass with a watercolor brush, knowing it will succeed in capturing not just the emotions of the moment, but a subject suitable to inject characters into, In watercolor there are no second chances, Unlike oils, or many other media, such as acrylic, any attempt to edit a watercolor turns to muddy brown in a hurry, The delicate details Ku achieves are not from careful brushwork, but by expressing his innermost feelings, He confidently approaches each sheet of rice paper like an emotive calligrapher,
