front cover and artist: rim lee

Rim Lee’s work finds primary source material within the realms of performance and photography while her oeuvre focuses on the intensity of human emotions. In her self-portraits - large oils on canvas, Lee emphasizes a visualisation of the conceptual values of inherent human emotions, as a result of which the artist provides a portrayal of human sentiment within the context of art discourse. Her work is defined by two main influences – East and West. She has been fascinated by Korean mythology, by its Confusionist and shamanist subtexts. However, she was equally exposed to American culture at a young age, when her parents moved to the U.S. for a few years. As an artist, she tries to synthesize these conflicting influences. Rim Lee is AN internationally collected artist represented by Kasia Kay Art…

editor’s note

Moving … spending time with dogs … moving … communing with nature … moving ... exploring new communities … moving. My life is starting to take on a bit of a hummmm or rhythm of existence, and I am loving it. I am being taught, and I am learning a lot about life and perspective. I have always been a bit of a one to shun the establishment, right from when I decided that going to university was not for me. I didn’t quite buy into the ‘you won’t amount anything’ scenario if you don’t go to university. I felt I needed to explore myself and the world a bit more before I locked myself into any particular agreement with anything external. I also went against mainstream and my family’s thought at…

collingwood children’s farm

Created in 1979, and located at Abbotsford in Melbourne, the Collingwood Children’s Farm is a not-for-profit community resource providing country experiences for city people. The philosophies of permaculture, landcare and organic farming guide what they do. When the farm began, initially a small area of the existing convent was leased, and then a committee was established with a plan to assist children living in an urban environment, learn to care for animals and nature - and also have fun outdoors. Open every day of the year, visitors can milk the cow, bottle feed young lambs (seasonal), feed the animals, help with farm chores, go into the paddocks with the sheep and goats, cuddle a guinea pig, waddle with the ducks, feed the chooks, look for eggs or just sit and…

what is a tussie mussie?

A tussie-mussie or posy, is a small flower bouquet, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the head or bodice. Doilies are traditionally used to bind the stems in these arrangements. Alternatively, posy holders, available in a variety of shapes and materials (although often silver), enable the wearing of these arrangements at the waist, in the hair, or secured with a brooch. The term tussie-mussie comes from the reign of Queen Victoria (1837–1901), when the small bouquets became a popular fashion accessory. Typically, tussie-mussies include floral symbolism from the language of flowers, and therefore may be used to send a message to the recipient, for example: rosemary signifies remembrance; ivy significes fidelity; lilies signify…
