"Djuro’s work at first seems a bright and bold venture into a digital world of computer graphics. But the soft colours hide a harder reality. Under their surface is a different world – a manipulative and seductive place of traps and fault lines, disruptive, dangerous and overwhelming. She is interested in the very contemporary tension between the real and virtual worlds, and how our dependence on ever more powerful technology
creates confusion between the two."

Ambient Anxiety Prints
This is an unlimited edition print series of 500 prints of the six original canvas paintings made for a two-person London exhibition.
Djuro's work describes the transverse feeling of inhabiting both our online and offline spaces, and the sensory and mental overload of rapidly switching from one to the other:
"My canvas offers familiar Web-like graphics, and then interrupts them: with no assigned compositional hierarchy, the layers cut and disrupt one another. In a saccharine, pastel rainbow palette, they hold us suspended in their air-tight, silicone gravity – just like the screens we hold in our hands."
