Tara Zanzig debuts a recent series of gritty analog quality works on canvas and paper whose style references the 1990s’ era of photocopied punk flyers and zines. Her pieces for this exhibition draw inspiration from psychological effects related to modern media’s presence and function. This work explores relevant topics including identity, perception, and value.

With a Pop influence and punk aesthetic, her work seeks meaning in a commercially driven society through the exploration of its icons & idols.
