I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Color of Change
We Can't Breathe

Artist Spotlight: Haejung Lee

A selection of recent work by artist Haejung Lee (previously featured here). Driven by an obsession with documentation, Lee sees her work as a representation of herself — a personal archive that would otherwise be forgotten through time:

“Works can contain fragments of memories, moments within time, or internal struggles that may still be on-going or have passed through life. In order to fully express the complexity of the subject matter, I juxtapose elements within reality in a surrealistic manner. In this way, I create a photographic image that captures both the visual and emotional factor of the subject matter. The works are presented to the viewers in hope of evoking their own life’s details and find beauty in the little details that make up who they are.”
