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 SEVEN — OUT NOW

This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
