May 2013 Art Exhibit
Daryl-Ann Hurst
Photo-Collage Work


Rochester resident and talented artist, Daryl-Ann Hurst, branches out into new territory in her current show at the Rochester Public Library.  Although generally regarded as a painter, Hurst is also a published photographer.  Her most recent work is photo-collage, and she has created two photo-collage series, “Rural Contracts” and “Razing the Garden”  that are currently on exhibit at the Library.  Hurst describes this new medium as “A refreshing way to express myself, as well as a gratifying experience”.

Travel influences her pieces in the “Rural Contracts” series, where photos are collaged to create quirky, often humorous images.  Many in the “Razing the Garden” series are florals reconstructed in an abstract way and very much a celebration of color and form.  Much of this work also includes additional drawing and painting, to complete or add context.  One of the major florals is on fabric.

Hurst began photo-collage as a look at her recent photographic work and at first included a 3-D approach.  Finally she started cutting into the photographs and the new pieces were born.

Hurst, originally from California, earned a BA in Art from California State University.  She later moved to New England, where she owned a gallery in Connecticut, and has been showing her work in galleries and venues across the country.  Hurst’s art will be on display at the Rochester Public Library through the month of May.
