Artist Spotlight: Nevena Prijic

Nevena Prijic is a Serbian artist based in Los Angeles. With an interest in the transformation of life forms, Prijic finds comfort in the interconnectedness of plants, human animals, and machines, explaining: “in this space age, we are searching for answers, where did we come from, and what the future holds, and in that shared loneliness, I’m finding more in common with all life on earth.” She notes that the way our ecosystem is intertwined is “ever more obvious with the climate change that we’re experiencing.”

The figurine forms in Prijic’s paintings are inspired by relics of Vincha culture—a Neolithic archaeological culture in Southeast Europe (present-day Serbia). “I find them really interesting because they look alien, which means that they can belong to any world, nation or time, like some sort of universal being,” she explains. “Science and technology are developing at the same speed, which makes it interesting to see the way they are influencing the evolution of human species.”
