Lesia Mokrycke’s works are woven with experience from her personal heritage, sensory attunement to the natural world, and historic curiosities about human relationship to place. Her often abstract drawings, paintings, environmental artworks, sound pieces and installations blend human experience with impressions of nature and the surround, while also highlighting her mastery of traditional mediums. Mokrycke brings 15 years of experience in art practice to her work, drawing on her arts-based method of inquiry to inform her urban design work at larger scales. Working from the intimacy of a garden to the larger scale of ecological design, her narrative interest in water utilizes a strong commitment to materials to integrate natural systems with human experience. In each of her projects, Mokrycke seeks to create resonant spaces that enhance how we connect with one another and the environment.

Mokrycke worked with leading landscape architecture practices in Seattle, Zürich, and Vancouver before returning to Hamilton to establish Tropos. She has been an Artist in Residence at Halls Island, Haliburton, ON; the Banff Centre for the Arts, Banff, AB; and Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT.

 

Mokrycke earned a Master of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Art from the Design School at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. She received a BFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and UPenn, where she studied painting and comparative literature and graduated with honors. Mokrycke works extensively with local municipalities to develop educational content that advances public knowledge, and in 2023 she received a Concept to Realization grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to further develop her work on the urban forest.
