'politcal art for political times'
Dara Herman Zierlein is a political artist, born and raised in NYC and currently living in Northampton, MA with her family & animals.
’’I am inspired to paint out of the need to tell a story or record a period of time others may choose not to recognise. My topics of interest are often personal, involving my role and struggles as a woman in American culture.
My political paintings touch topics such as equal rights, women's rights, gender identity, environmental catastrophes and the consequences of plastic pollution on the environment.
My desire is to educate my audience through the use of a visual narrative combined with hand written text to relay a message to think about in my art work. Through painting I found a voice to talk about human behavior and find beauty in the face of decay of the planet. These are my recent topics. I am hoping my work will bring about awareness and change in daily life and bring another perspective to the audience.’’
