Our Pull Focus video series takes its lead from our print magazine feature of the same name. Here, we focus in on what makes a particular artwork WORK as a work of art. Watch Edward Colless in conversation with distinguished Australian Chinese artist Lindy Lee about her work Open as the Sky, showing in her survey at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art titled Moon in a Dew Drop.
