Danielle Mužina, an artist and educator currently living and working in Cleveland, Ohio, makes paintings that explore place, identity, and crisis, inspired by both personal lived and inherited familial experiences. Using the homespace as a point of grounding and as metaphor, she writes: "My immigrant grandmother, reflecting on witnessing national traumas in our home of former Yugoslavia, tells me 'to pay attention when the sky's bleeding, even if someone tells you it's not'."
