Lesia Mokrycke is completing a combined Master of Fine Art and Master of Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. Her practice includes both large-scale public projects as well as more intimate drawings, paintings and sculptures as part of a multi-media studio practice. Mokrycke's work addresses time and movement as elements that knit together the social, political and environmental aspects of a place . Her work often utilizes sound, light and water as the principle elements of culture, underscoring issues of identity. Through the lens of landscape architecture and contemporary art, Mockrycke's practice frames relationships between culture, place and the landscape. More recently, her artistic and design work investigates methods for visualizing underground territories, and examines what potential outcomes emerge from interaction between political boundaries and open systems.
