                                “In stressing how the work of Su Kwak is beautiful and well-crafted, I realize there are many people today who see an aspiration to beauty or skill as being as out of date as an aspiration towards spirituality.  However, it has been my experience (and the experience of many who study the history of art) that what tends to survive the test of time is usually that which is best made and visually most compelling. Skill and beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but even if we cannot define them absolutely, we can still recognize them.  For that reason, I believe the art of Su Kwak will have a rich future.”
