Featured artist and ecoartspace member is Luba Zygarewicz and her recent installation titled SENTINELS, Keepers of Light: Community environmental project, 2021, working with Monofilament and broken fishing ropes recovered along the shores of East-port, Maine (168 x 144 x 120 inches).
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. Born in Chile, raised in Bolivia, Zygarewicz moved to San Francisco at the age of 15. She received her BA in Visual Arts from Loyola University, New Orleans, and her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.
