Lexi Janezic

Lexi Janezic acknowledges that the development and settlement of the western United States is directly related to her own sense of self, as her ancestors contributed to the now diminished state of the Tallgrass Prairie in their efforts to survive. She creates work which stresses the close relationship between the local, the global, and the personal, displaying how the layered environment of the Tallgrass Prairie ecosystem is also of the layered global environment.
