Over the last year and a half, the pandemic has left many people in emotional limbo. As a result, many have sought out coping mechanisms both old and new. Tucson-based artist Lex Gjurasic has stayed buoyant by continuing to do what she has been doing for decades—creating art, at an extraordinarily prolific pace. Gjurasic’s recentFlower Moundsseries hearkens back to her childhood, when she found herself in the hospital quite often and soothed herself by obsessively getting lost in the inner world of her imagination. As an adult, she now activates her passion for drawing flowers to combat anxiety, propelling her practice and improving her mental health. Through her obsessive process, Gjurasic actively strives towards radical happiness and hopes that others might also find levity and a path to joy – so c’mon and get happy, y’all!
