Enlightened State of Mind – Mi Ju (13 pics)


The more I look at Mi Ju’s amazingly detailed work, the more I’m impressed by it. I just featured her in a post last week, but I stumbled upon some of her most recent works and they are truly mind-blowing.

To create her incredibly complex masterpieces, the 26-year-old uses acrylic, glitter, and lots of water on paper and canvas. “I don’t usually sketch it out too much, she says. “I always start painting the eyes first, until I think it’s perfect, because it makes me feel confident that I can complete the rest of the painting as good as the eyes. From there, the painting grows.”

“My work is an improvisation in liminality: between dream and concretized, ancient and contemporary, Korea and the West, ephemeral and eternal, the uncensored and codified.” She adds, “It is my hope that these images and the series of works presented will become emblematic of states of optimism.”

Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
