Lecturer of Painting and Printmaking
Native San Diegan Maryann Luera’s body of work encompasses a varied array of images and subject matters, encouraging a unique perspective on established themes. Her work with Mexican imagery expresses a love and respect for her roots and traditions, all the while giving the viewer a new perspective on an already familiar culture.
In her figurative paintings, Luera explores gender perceptions and expectations, depicting idealized male figures in situations and roles traditionally reserved for the female figure, encouraging the reexamination of established gender roles in society and their effect on our everyday lives.
Luera has been painting for over twenty years. She holds a BA in Fine Art from the University of San Diego and an MFA from San Diego State University. She currently divides her time between painting and teaching Art and Painting at San Diego State University and the University of San Diego.
