Lviv citizen Daria Zawyalowa loves her city. Only the house “Under the Eagles” on Chuprynka Street inspired her to create a series of six works. In Dariya’s graphics the city painted with watercolors and markers.
And in 2014, the Garden appeared in the artist’s life. Thanks to the discovery in her life of a botanical garden on Cheremshyna Street in Lviv. The Garden of Dariya Zavialova embrodied in textiles and embroidery.
The City and the Garden do not contradict each other. They complement the harmony of handmade and natural. The City with its architecture is a wonderful architecture of stone-encrusted “caves”, places where you can hide to feel safe and protected from the weather. The Garden is a human attempt to bring order and harmony into the external environment, in order to go where when it is a good weather, to enjoy the flowers, trees, bushes, colors and a cultural nature.
Generally, Zawyalowa is fascinated by the idea of a city-garden. It is so popular in the modern era. “The City and the Garden” exhibition by Dariya Zawyalowa will present for the first time the artist’s latest works created over the last year, as well as three works from her previous exhibition.
