Big Sister IIIBig Sister Detail

"BIG SISTER"   2008   16" Square (Collection of Jody and David Gardner)
"BIG SISTER II" 2009 18" Square (Collection of Marta E. Noe)
"BIG SISTER III" (Pictured) 2009 24" X 28"

Digital inkjet print on treated silk habotai, from a photo circa 1958, cut into strips, rewoven in an inlay technique, cotton ground with synthetic thread.

Artist's Statement: "The intimacy of the image of me and my little sister caught on film by my dad, calls to mind enduring relationships, simpler times, the thirst for knowledge, the simple act of sharing a good book between friends. Cutting the image apart and reassembly it in a woven structure speaks of how the assembling of our memories makes us who we are at this moment in time."

"Big Sister" was donated to the “2008 Blank Canvas Benefit”, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, Summit, NJ Guest Curator: Ann Schaffer

SurvivorSurvivor Detail"SURVIVOR"   2008   12" x  9"   

Original photo, digital inkjet print on treated silk habotai, cut into strips, rewoven in an inlay technique with a cotton ground and a rayon tie-down thread.

This piece won Best In Show at the New Jersey Center for the Visual Arts Members' Show 2008.  Juror: Edwin Ramoran, Director of Exhibitions of Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, New Jersey  

"...artists like those shown here feel what they do, and worry less about how others will see them.  Which rhymes rather well with this year's best in show, a photograph of a breast cancer survivor's lean torso woven in strips onto a small canvas by Daryl Lancaster.  "Survivor" is all about daring others to look.  Arms up, body given just a touch of contrapposto twist, "Survivor" looks for all the world like an underwear ad when you first see it.  Which is, of course, the point."   - Dan Bischoff, Newark Star-Ledger, Friday June 20, 2008

"Survivor" was also selected for exhibit in the 2008 Hoyt Mid Atlantic Juried Art Exhibition, The Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts, New Castle, PA Juror: Douglas Fogle and the "18th National Juried Show" 2009 Art Center of Northern New Jersey, New Milford, NJ Juror: Clare Bell, formerly associate curator of prints and drawings, Solomon R.
