Curriculum Vitae

b. Sydney/Eora Nation, Australia
Currently lives in Alice Springs/Mparntwe, Central Australia, employed as the Coordinator for Watch This Space, Artist Run Initiative

Zoya primarily works with drawing, painting, soft sculpture and installation. Underpinning her work is a concern with emotion and its capacity to facilitate introspection and change. Informed by personal and collective experiences, she confronts social issues surrounding women and mental health, hoping to create intimate anti-patriarchal acts that stimulate contemplation and reflection within both the viewer and herself.
