Hyun-Hee Lee writes:
‘The poem ‘By the Chrysanthemum’ by Seo, Jungju inspired me to create this work which in its entirety speaks about the order of the universe as experienced and symbolized by the Chrysanthemum.
My work shares the sentiments of this poem, of underlying loss and melancholia, but with the implication that winter will pass and bring new life and hope with spring.’
