A change of scene gave artist Miju Lee a fresh outlook and a new palette.

FLIGHT OF FANCY

Sweet pencilled lines, delicately cut layers, and a certain naivety in perspective and dimension make Miju Lee’s artworks comforting and hopeful. Lee is from South Korea, where she started making art while holding down a job in a small design studio. Eventually, she skipped town in favour of Barcelona—an impulsive move that was prompted by the question, “Do I flutter with what I am doing?” It’s a simple self-assessment, and the poetics mirror Lee’s output.

Using a colour palette that is like melted ice-cream, Lee’s work has an unguarded charm, which is part of its direct appeal. Each imperfect vase is matched by a faultless circle of hair. Each indecipherably stacked collage is calmed by a ceramic egg whose only gesture is its neatly folded legs. And each medium in which she participates—ceramics, drawing, painting, paper—is paired with a new method for capturing or releasing a feeling.

ISSUE NINE — PRE-ORDER NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
