It takes a moment for reality to crystallise in full sensory capacity as one turns off their screen. The more our virtual and offline lives interlace, the more of a Pavlovian response we develop to the digital. The screen’s incessant attraction punctuates our visual perception, hooking us with instant gratification, and holding our focus in flux: neither here nor there. Represented by a warm brightness is the “there” we are trained to reach for, peeking through the pixelated curtain of moiré interference drizzling over the canvas’ flatness.
"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.

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."
