Powerful women's stories told in Becoming, a solo exhibit in New York

NEW YORK, NY.- Elisa Contemporary Art presents Becoming, the first New York City solo exhibit of Connecticut Figurative artist, Daryl Zang. The exhibit is being held in the public art space at Saint Peter’s Church in New York -- 619 Lexington Avenue (at 54th Street). The exhibit runs through October 10th.

Daryl Zang’s art communicates the universal stories of women -- the teacher and temptress, protector and provider, nurturer and needy. They are moments of pure selflessness, and others of self-absorption. While based on her own personal experiences, Daryl's work touches on universal truths of women everywhere…shared around the world and passed down from generation to generation. In Becoming, there are captured moments filled with doubt, longing, deep sorrow. Others exuding maternal instincts, selflessness, pure joy and letting go.

According to Daryl: "Women’s lives are so multifaceted that the potential for subject matter is seemingly endless. There are themes common to all of us which are simply human."

As Daryl has grown and changed over time, her work has evolved as well. As a young woman, she painted about loss, pregnancy and the early stages of motherhood, sharing the uncertainty, isolation, and exhaustion as well as the tenderness. As her children have grown, she found inspiration in their discoveries and wonder in all they taught her.

The exhibit includes several new works including “Cared For,” which was inspired by the simple task of washing hands. According to Daryl, “This painting’s imagery serves as a reminder of what and who is important. I am supposed to be my children’s teacher and caregiver, but I find that I often need them...They reset the pace at which I sometimes race through life. Tuning myself in to their innocence and simple rhythms, ‘cleanses’ me of the (adult) stresses and brings me back into balance.”

Strong hands are a constant theme throughout Daryl’s work. They shed light on how women have worked tirelessly to create life and, whether physically or metaphorically, to build a home. They also represent the sacred space which at times creates, holds and nurtures, and then releases.

This special solo exhibit celebrates the universal moments of Women everywhere. Meet the artist, Daryl Zang on Thursday, September 12th from 6-8pm.

A portion of all gallery sales by Elisa Contemporary Art are donated to charities helping children heal through art. For this exhibit, a portion of sales will be donated to The EverWonder Children's Museum in Newtown, CT.
