Current ExhibitJan 13–Jun 11
A cohesive series of verdant, undulating, biomorphic work, Lex Gjurasic’s works are an expression of her exuberance for life, and a love letter to the natural world. Her work aesthetically alludes to the folkloric floral motifs of her Slavic heritage, and the joie de vivre manifested as she connects deeply to ritual, to nature and to the Queer virtues of radical happiness and celebration as a sacred act of grieving.
A visual artist originally from Seattle, WA, Lex currently lives and works in Tucson. She has exhibited her work nationally, most notably in 2009 as a featured artist in at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, CA. One of her video projects was made part of the permanent collection at the Getty Institute as part of Miranda July’s Joanie4Jackie archive. She recently completed a mural with the City of Tucson’s Downtown Murals Project as well as a temporary immersive exhibition at the Scottsdale Public Library with Scottsdale Public Art.
