Please come join me on Thursday, April 5th for the opening of Soft Spring! I'm thrilled to be the featured Artist in The Museum Store at the Tucson Museum of Art & Historic Block and showcase this new work which is avaiable for purchase. The reception will be in coordination with other events that evening at TMA from 5-8pm. Soft Spring will be on display April 3-28.
Lex Gjurasic’s Soft Spring is new work that includes paintings, sculpture and wearable art. With Soft Spring Gjurasic embraces her synesthesia, allowing it to be involved in the creative process much like a divining rod, as opposed to treating the blending of sensory perceptions as a side effect of making art. The result is a wonderfully experimental body of mixed media work that draws its structural inspiration from botanical shapes, while having the textural quality and colors of edible confections. Gjurasic's synesthesia, in which colors have flavor, is even present in the title of this new work - Soft Spring; a play on words that speaks to both the floral motif and the texture of a perfect piece of cake.
