Louis-Marc Servien and The Art World
 

The new millenium brought with it a new business venture: the promotion of international artists. It was to prove the start of a busy and successful career as an art impresario organizing exhibits in Geneva, Paris, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzou, Tokyo and other cities around the world.

 
 

Artist Jeong-Ae Ju was the key figure of this venture as it was she who introduced Servien to the world of art.

Born in Gwangju, South Korea, in December 1961, this visual artist with a degree from Hongik University divided her time between France and Switzerland.

Her early death in January 2013 leaves radiant memories of the agreeable, smiling, charming young woman that she was -- and of a creator who deserves praise, an artist to the depths of her soul whose work communicates the same joy of life that she transmitted to her friends and to her companion and patron of over 10 years.

Enfant à la rose (Flower Child), sculpture en plâtre – H : 152cm

 
Peintre de la paix et de l’harmonie entre les êtres humains, Jeong-Ae Ju poursuit une démarche artistique nourrie de la réalité du monde dans lequel elle vit et de la quête intérieure qu’elle mène basée sur la pensée bouddhiste zen et le Tao de Lao-Tseu.

Parmi les différents symboles qu’elle révèle et décline dans son œuvre, la rose symbolise, pour elle, la paix et l’amour. Fragile, la rose évoque le message de « Flower Power » des années soixante-dix ; éphémère, elle rappelle que l’homme n’est pas éternel, que le temps passe et le pousse vers sa fin.

La culture orientale de Jeong-Ae Ju l’amène naturellement à aborder ces notions avec sagesse et à devenir messagère de paix et de tolérance entre les hommes dans le court instant de vie qui leur est accordé au cœur de l’éternité du temps et de l’espace.

L’artiste souhaite poursuivre son œuvre par la création d’une roseraie de « flower child » composée de sculptures de bouddhas enfants entourés de roses naturelles ou sculptées.
 

A painter of peace and harmony between human beings, Jeong-Ae Ju adopts an artistic approach nourished by the reality of the world she inhabits and the inner quest she pursues, based on Zen Buddhist thought and the Tao of Lao-Tzu.

Among the different symbols she reveals and interprets in her work, for her the rose symbolises peace and love. The delicate rose evokes the Flower Power message of the 1970s; ephemeral, it reminds us that man is not eternal and that as time passes, his end draws nearer.

Jeong-Ae Ju’s oriental culture leads her naturally to convey these ideas with wisdom, to become the messenger of peace and tolerance between men in the brief instant of life granted to them from within the eternity of space and time.

The artist wishes to continue her work by creating a “flower child” rose garden, consisting of sculptures of child buddhas surrounded by natural or sculpted roses.
