Diane Green Artist's Statement
For me, art is freedom of speech that is beyond words. My creativity evolves from my stream of consciousness, and personal experience. My paintings are created within the moment, while patterns and symbolism weave from the past and the present.
Overall, I know my lifelong career as an artist is growing faster day by day. I believe viewers of my work may find personal meaning and joy. That is my intention.
Wisdom translates through shape, form, and color in any mode of style. Throughout life, 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 outsider, self-taught and educated who are workers among workers in the lifeboat called Art.
