Tempe Artist Clarita Luli? on Marriage and Its Influence on Her Work

What happens in the studio, shouldn't always stay in the studio. Studio Visit Q+A is a weekly series that profiles artists in their studios. We ask them questions, they provide answers, and then we have a nice discussion about their work. This week: Current ASU MFA student Clarita Lulić.

Originally hailing from the UK, Clarita Lulić is an emerging artist that mainly works with photography. Over her time spent studying at ASU, her practice has come to encompass sculpture, as well. Her current body of work, which will be featured in her MFA thesis exhibition at Gallery 100 next month, fittingly titled "The Good Hurt," deals with the relationship between husband and wife. Using her own relationship as a site of exploration, Lulić uses humor as a means to investigate the often private intricacies of personal relationships, specifically marriage -- a contract between two people.
