Diane Green Artist's Statement


 

My paintings, drawings, and prints evolve from a stream of consciousness in conjunction with mythology, mysticism, and spirituality. My joie de vivre emerges through it all.

 

My paintings are created within the moment, while patterns and symbolism weave from the past, the present, and the future. I seek adventure while treading old and new paths.

 

I believe viewers of my work may find personal meaning and connect. That is my intention and spiritual quest.

 

My works have floated through realms of abstraction, expression, neo-expression, and surrealism.  Over the years I have been influenced by Van Gogh for his madness, Basquiat for his freedom of expression, Dubuffet for his innocence, Hilma Af Klint for her unrecognized genius, as well as thousands of contemporary artists, outsiders, self-taught and educated who are workers among workers in the life of being an artist.
