The DNA series
The drawings in the DNA series are maps of actual human connections. SusanMaryZ grew up with no 1st cousins. The sheer number of relatives discovered through her research has dispelled any sense of autonomy in the world. Through these maps, both universal and deeply personal, SusanMaryZ celebrates one humanity and her growing family.

They are painted with gouache and drawn with india ink. Below is a selection of pieces from this series.
