Natalia Zubko is an artist from California who has lived and worked in Brooklyn the last 16 years. Her work ranges from large, often public, site-responsive environments and sculptures, small, intimate sculptures and collages, and interdisciplinary, multi-media, collaborative commissions and projects. She explores how intimacy can be experienced in vast spaces and vastness experienced in intimate spaces to create both a communal and individual sense of awe and quiet, evoking an intimate minimalism, that allows people to relate attentively to ever-expanding built and social environments. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US and Canada from non-traditional spaces like loading docks, abandoned lots, and old houses on Governor’s Island, NY to traditional spaces like the Kingsborough Art Museum, Felician University, Susquehanna Art Museum, Boston Public Libraries, and Nurture Art. Recently, she was interviewed for the online Arts Journal: Anti Heroin Chic: “Tapping into a Sense of Wonder.”
Outside of her own creative endeavors, Natalia co-curates the Art Lot, an outdoor public space near Red Hook, Brooklyn and is an adjunct faculty at Parsons School of Design and City College of New York, CUNY. She has BA's in Anthropology and Art History from Brandeis University as well as a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (Brandeis) and MFA (Parsons) in Fine Arts, Sculpture.
