Artist Bio:
Sandra Vucicevic is a New York based multidisciplinary artist of Serbian origin. She immigrated to United States in 2005, and currently works from her studio in Long Island City, Queens. Sandra holds a B.A. in Studio Art (Painting) from Hunter College, and a law degree from University of Belgrade, Serbia.
Although her art practice centers mainly on painting, she often experiments in other fields. Sandra's early poetry and drawings were published in The Gate (Kapija), in 1995. Her work also includes conceptual projects in the field of Relational Aesthetics, which embraces audience participation.
Sandra Vucicevic's art has been in many exhibitions, and can be found in private and public collections in the United States and abroad. In 2013, she was awarded a Queens Art Council grant for her multi-dimensional performance "BRUSH-VOTES - CREATING THE CREATOR". In 2015, her project "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT" was chosen to represent Serbia at the World Expo in Milan, Italy. Most recently, she received a 2018 SU CASA residency funded by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, NYC Department of Aging, in partnership with the NYC Council and the Materials for the Arts

Artist Statement:
My art explores complex and ambiguous space between reality and dreams. I paint the world of contrasts, transitions, and obscurities - a hybrid reality in which the Known and the Unknown overlap and merge. In my work this is represented by combining opposing elements: abstract and figurative visual languages, complementary colors, and different media and techniques.
