Invitation art was provided by Aleksandra Zdun. Aleksander is an art educator and a painter located in the Chicago Suburbs. Her work is a “coming-of-age” autobiography inspired by the concept of inner dialogue originating from Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way”. This concept of inner dialogue explores the relationships between three characters: the child, the wise, and the critic. As a first-generation student, Zdun has used this concept to process her childhood and ultimately allowed her to give power to her wisdom, love her child-self, and accept her critic as a protector of who she is. This body of six pieces also allowed her to create a dimension not rooted in reality, a surrealistic world that deconstructs any binary, letting her exist in a space society cannot touch. She has been featured in the MiddleWestern Voice (2022, 2023), the Pink Slip (2023), and her work was part of a group exhibition in The Accelerator ArtSpace (2022).
