about me

about denise zygadlo Denise Zygadlo lives and works in Scotland. Her work includes drawing, printing, performance and installation. Trained in printed textiles, Denise worked with several design studios, before moving from London to Dumfries in 1980. She shows her work in Arusha Gallery, Edinburgh and the Scottish Society of Artists as a professional member. She has had three solo exhibitions. The relationship between the body and cloth is the main focus of her work and Denise explores this through drawing and collage, incorporating transfer images of photocopies of her own wrapped body. Working with movement and performance, Denise developed her work through collaboration with dancers, musicians and a film-maker to produce Wrap, an installation and performance piece, in 2014. She is currently working on the theme of kept cloth, looking at associations with items of clothing that are cherished. An online exhibition of this work can be seen in the viewing room on the Arusha Gallery website.
