Diana uses colour and texture to capture emotional experiences. A bold engagement with various materials reflects her character and her search for the “intangible”. Purely abstract paintings have developed into semi-abstract landscapes, encouraging play between the boundaries of representation and abstraction, and leading recently to include more symbolism.
“Silent Woods to the Right” is inspired by Dvorak’s dreamy work for cello and piano called Silent Woods. The piece, originally called De Ruhe (The Silence) is cause for much musical reflection, inspiring visual possibilities for reflection.
Diana chose to represent the trees in the woods in different sections of colour and tone after the Fauve painter Andre Derain, as one can often see when parts of a tree are reflected in water, or seen against a bright skyline, with different sections taking on different colours.
