We believe 'Peter Rabbit' because Beatrix Potter believes it. You have to.” Nikki Giovanni This artwork explores the strange history of creepy, quirky rabbits in illustration and art, where weird rabbits appear throughout children’s literature and vintage photography. The artist is always examining the gamut of symbolism, approaching the spectrum of meanings playfully. Bunnies are widely loved and a staple of fables, folklore, and mythology the world over, the rabbit connected to the moon, good luck, fertility, being in a hurry, or new beginnings, as well as to ranging qualities like sensitivity, gullibility, and the ominous. The artist layers collage pieces from her collection of imagery and text, drawers and boxes of found papers she gathers everywhere she goes. She finds joy in juxtaposition. Letters and numbers have visual texture, and she submerges them in fields of acrylic and spray paint, pastel marks and gestures. Snippets of poetry are scrawled like graffiti. The anthropomorphic impulse – to give human qualities to animals- is a familiar feature in fairy tales and surrealist art, and here the iconic odd rabbit is taken from the green meadows to become a fixture of the urban environment, a chalk outline on the tagged and painted landscapes of the city wall. This work is for the collector who loves urban expressionist artworks and whose dreams are populated with fantastical creatures, city streets, and rich layers of symbolism. "A superhuman effort to coalesce the imaginative world." Moray Mair, Mutant Space Arts "Luzajic, like Wonder Woman, is her own institution." Paul Robinson, Blog Critics "Queen of the fantastic." Carrie Shibinsky, Art Bomb Daily Statement: Compared to Rauschenberg, Schwitters, and Basquiat, and inspired by Warhol, Joseph Cornell, Robert Motherwell, and Antoni Tapies, I wear my influences on my sleeve. Appropriating relentlessly from art history, advertising, music, literature, culture, religion, and my travels, I plunder everything to create original work that reflects my own experiences as a woman and as an artist. I am driven by eclectic curiosity, and by the joy of juxtaposition. My work is a curiosity cabinet and an apothecary of magic potions and spells. It is filled with poetry, grief, the broken shards of faith, all that I have seen so far, and a veritable lexicon of fragmented symbols. It is the frantic pace of the city and the magnificent silence of the night. It is about love and death and the sacred and inane, and the absurdity and beauty in all things. bio: Lorette C.
