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 EIGHT — PRE-ORDER NOW

In this issue we challenge stereotypes, big and small. Klaus Dyba’s portraits of hairless dogs embrace the bald and the beautiful, Winnie Au’s fashion-inspired photos take the shame out of the cone, and the stellar lineup in Really Good Dog Photography stir us well away from the obvious fluff. We marvel at artists who can breath life into hounds on paper, screen and space. We travel to the heart of Australia, where dogs can easily become a hungry croc’s lunch. We fall in love with the ultimate four-legged bad-asses (we are looking at you, Brian Griffin) and we hang with farm dogs and their hip humans in the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. All this, and more, inside the covers.
