Diane Green Artist's Statement
My paintings, drawings, and prints portray from my stream of consciousness absorbed in mythology, mysticism, and spirituality. My joie de vivre emerges through it all. My paintings are created sometimes within the moment, while patterns and symbolism weave from the past, the present, and the future.
I believe viewers of my work will find personal meaning and connect. That is my intention and spiritual quest.
My work has 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 on the beam as artists.
