Lucy Zaroyko, b.1991 is an Australian artist with Ukrainian heritage working across painting, textiles and sculpture. Interested in the emotional processes of moving through landscapes, her work investigates psycho-geography, romanticism and poetry. Over the past 12 months the artist has worked in a small location on Yuin Country between the NSW South Coast and Southern Tablelands. This body of work, created in rural isolation is inspired by the enduring procession of the seasons. In this place, gentle shifting hues in the landscape become cyclic, grounding reminders of universality.
Lucy Zaroyko formally trained in painting at the College of Fine Arts. Zaroyko is currently represented by Discordia Gallery Melbourne, she has exhibited across a range of galleries and experimental spaces in Australia including Liverpool St Gallery, Alaska Projects, Lon Gallery and Tributary Projects. She maintains a studio based practice in Sydney and runs an experimental self titled fashion label in dialogue with her painting processes.
