Her identical twin survived.
Margot comes to me in my dreams,
growing older along with her sister.
Irene Zion has had no formal training in painting. She has been in a show of Outsiders at the University of Southern Illinois, entitled: Visions Not Far From Normal, in 1997. In November and December 2010, she was featured at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans, as part of an exhibit entitled: Like A Prayer: Reflections of a Twenty-first Century Feminine.
Irene Zion’s paintings are all oil on canvas. She makes her own wooden frames in various ways, wood burning figures on them, painting them, taking a blowtorch to them, using found objects and paint together; each frame is an integral part of the finished painting and different from any other. Irene paints people and animals exclusively.
