The works of Anužytė, Kovalevskij, and Juozėnas offer varying perspectives on queer identity. Anužytė's exploration of op-art delves into how this style can convey queerness and transmit messages through repeating patterns and color play. Meanwhile, Kovalevskij appropriates the act of writing and reading into everyday situations, inviting viewers to rethink their own queer identities through quick pen and marker drawings. Juozėnas' installation "Uncertainty" utilizes a regular grass genus to illustrate the indeterminacy of particles in quantum physics and in doing so, blurs the lines between the countryside and the laboratory. Together, these artists provide unique ways of thinking and presenting queerness, challenging the viewer's perception and understanding of this complex topic.

Her art invites viewers to contemplate the interplay between shape, color, and the mind and how it affects our mental state. Her creative pursuits have spanned various disciplines, including textile, costume design, fine arts, and body mechanics while exploring color and space. A recent project mainly based on her approach to mental health, where she has developed her methods to create a meditative and calming process while exploring painting as a craft. She is generally very interested in repetitive and tedious processes, which leads to creative decision-making.
