There is no such thing as an accident for acrylic painter, Mary Zeran. Being present in the moment allows for Zeran to thoughtfully create intricate layers. Through layering of brushstrokes and colors, viewers find it necessary to examine her work closely, allowing for an evaluation of minute detail, otherwise unseen.
Zeran paints on acetate sheets, which she collages on to a painted surface. This approach allows her to communicate and transform the work in a way not normally achieved through traditional painting techniques. After each acetate layer is arranged, Zeran seals it with a coat of gel medium, preserving the moment and keeping the overlay individual to itself but working with and complementing each new layer.
