About The Artwork

Hurricane Woman was completed the night before Hurricane Sandy struck. I think of her as an archetypal figure: a muse, a writer or creator, both powerful and intelligent. This painting was used as the cover of APEX Magazine (and is about to be featured as a book cover for an upcoming poetry publication). The magazine's editor had this to say about the image: “Hurricane Woman” by S. Zar is a little different style than most of the covers I choose for Apex Magazine. The speculative element is more subtle, less spectacular unreality and more the hidden storm inside of us all. The woman’s face is impassive. Her clothing nearly matches the background, as if she spends her life trying to blend in, not wanting to call attention to herself. But the moment of the piece is one in which she’s revealing what is inside of her. She pulls apart the fabric of her dress (of herself?) and inside a storm is brewing. One that spills out of her. One that could drown us all. And I’d swear there’s a glint in her eyes as she stares back at the viewer that is daring us to judge her, to judge the fact that she couldn’t hold back the emotions roiling within her any longer."

My paintings, often executed in low-lit, moody colors, are filled with bizarre figures, interacting or inhabiting solitary scenes with other unnatural presences, absences, and transpositions. I paint on old book pages and smooth sanded wood remnants, preferring the polished texture of things with lost histories. My intimately sized oil paint compositions often refer to disturbing and deceptive content and lend themselves to ambiguous interpretation. Surrounded by collaged wooden frames, these works are often figurative and a bit fabulist. For me, painting is a way of thinking through sight, and I am inspired by the indirect histories I find in literature and libraries. Object making is my way of rescuing short poems from permanent invisibility.
