Zara is an American symbolist painter, communicating that which she finds mysterious. She views art making as a means of processing the subconscious, and its end vision providing a way to better understand ourselves and the meaning behind our shared existence. In her work, this language often consists curious landscapes familiar yet distant, and figures that are often as confused as we are.
Zara Kand was raised in Europe and has lived in the US for the greater part of her life, creating art since old enough to hold a pencil. She has exhibited throughout numerous venues within the US and has been featured in many online and print publications. She currently lives in the California high desert where she spends most of her time oil painting, curating art shows, teaching painting classes, illustrating, and catering events.
She also is the editor of “The Gallerist Speaks”, an online interview series focusing on the experience of gallery owners, directors and curators. http://www.thegalleristspeaks.com
