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.
