Good Children Gallery is excited to present a solo exhibition by Luba Zygarewicz watermark reflects on the invisible yet indelible imprint that marks our lives. Through a series of sculptural pieces that integrate water as a medium or byproduct, Zygarewicz also examines the imprint embedded in her work as she navigates across a range of materials including the debut of meandering line, an installation that archives 100 watermarks done as a form of meditation using ink on paper.

It is in the repetition of a mark or the weaving of a line again and again, that the dialogue between material and hand evolves. In that liminal space, the work levitates in search of balance. If each day was a mark, what would your life look like?

"As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become."
John O'Donohoe

LUBA ZYGAREWICZ is a multidisciplinary artist based in New Orleans. She was born in Chile, grew up in Bolivia, and immigrated to San Francisco at the age of 15. She received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA in Visual Arts from Loyola University.

Zygarewicz gravitates to creating pieces that, in time, accumulate to a larger whole, working with materials such as hair, lint, twigs, cotton, and tea. Her work comments on the transience of time and landscape and elevates the seemingly banal through immersive, place-based installations and sculptures. She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent residencies include The Hambidge Center in Georgia, and STUDIOWORKS, in Maine.

This work has been supported in part by the STUDIOWORKS/Tides Institute and Museum of Art, a private not-for-profit organization, and by a grant from the Louisiana Division for the Arts.
