The Flighty canvases subtly satirise our modern inclination to seek high-definition experiences in virtual realms, inadvertently diverting our attention from the authentic and irreplaceable moments of our lives. To capture the visual essence of a screen, the artist employed a distinctive technique, utilising spray paint through a netting, pre-painted in latex. This method results in a piece that not only showcases trust in the medium but also embraces the serendipitous drips and accidents that arise. Flighty invites viewers to reflect upon the inherent value and richness found in fully immersing ourselves in the present moment.
"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."
