In the latest issue of Hi-Fructost magazine, Vol. 27, I have a 4+ page feature on Korean artist Lee Jinju, whose haunting, detailed paintings combine scenes from rural South Korea and her identity as a woman and mother. “There was a time when I was in so much agony, that I felt death. It was then that I tried to find the meaning of my life through my work.”
I was enamored with her work from the moment I saw it. She reminds me of a modern day Frida Kahlo who blurs the lines between reality and dreams.
I also have a shorter feature on Taschen’s beautiful new book on tree houses called “Fairy Tale Castles in the Air.”
