About #100 Day: “This came out of an Instagram challenge,” says Mary Zeran. “The focus was to make one piece a day for 100 days and post them on IG. It was a wonderful experience for me. I’ve been wanting to explore filling the picture plane instead of my usual sculptural approach—i.e., an object floating in space. I also wanted to dig deep into pattern making. Wow! Did I learn a lot!”
Mary Zeran grew up in a family of women artists. Textiles, embroidery, and woodcarving, were their visual language. Abstracted shapes and forms were their words. Each time Zeran picks up a brush or scissors, she immerses herself in the language of her family. As she abstracts flowers, trees, and all the colors of nature, she speaks her mother tongue. This language brings her closer to her family’s traditions, histories, and stories.
