2019 DUMA Biennial Artist MARY ZERAN

Technically, more collage than paintings, I paint on polyester film, cut out shapes, and then arrange them on a painted surface. This allows me to interact with the “object.” It is a spontaneous and collaborative process. This way of working, gives me the chance to be responsive to the random things that happen in the process of gluing and cutting, to tap into my internal rhythms and way of being.

From the artist’s statement.
