Zora Gamberg is a painter invested in deconstructing the human-centered logic which defines our relationship to land. She sees landscape painting as a practice that holds great potential for accessing new and constructive perspectives that seek not to other, but to unite with nature through processes of generative worldbuilding. These are worlds in which trees, birds, water, and the soil from which they are born possess autonomy and memory; spaces in which the cycles of decay and rebirth are unavoidable and celebrated as truth. Through material exploration in painting, knitting, ceramics, and film she seeks to create spaces that challenge our constructions of the natural world in order to access our innate connection to land.
Zora is pursuing a BFA in painting at Rhode Island School of Design.
