This class will be led by JP Morrison Lans, one of the five lead artists behind The EXPERIENCE. Her career began in 2000 when, at age sixteen, her figurative work was accepted for her exhibition, Color at the Tulsa Artists’ Coalition. In 2007, Lans received her BFA from The Kansas City Arts Institute. During her time in Kansas City, Lans co-owned and curated the Grothaus+Pearl Gallery. Lans returned to Tulsa in 2008 and continuing her work dedicated to the human experience; The Beguiled Series focused on subverting female roles in fairytales and was followed by the Luminescent Series centered on the play of light against skin. In 2011, Lans received the Spotlight Honorarium from the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition to create Mono-No-Aware, an installation about the passage of time and how we carry our memories. Lans moved to Queensland, Australia in 2012. There she began the Rorschach Series of mirrored/mimicked figures and her piece Mermaid was purchased for the permanent collection of the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery. In 2014, Lans returned to Tulsa and began work on Wundrian an installation for the New Genre Festival, 2015. Wundrian marked the beginning of Lans’ work animating drawings with LED and playing with concepts of home as self-portrait, fort building and evoking wonderment through immersive art.
