In a stylistic amalgam of pop and folk, abstract and figurative, artist Diana Rosa takes inspiration from her upbringing in Cuba. "Being born and raised in Cuba shaped my perspective on nature and how humans interact with land, animals and each other," she says. In this portrait, Diana weaves together natural and cultural elements of her native country, connected deep within her subject.
Lighthearted and jovial by nature, Diana’s contemporary paintings depict people in varied scenarios of indulgence. Whether it is a quiet moment alone in the woods, or a tantalizing rendezvous in the tub, Diana creates private moments in carefree or comedic ways. Her narratives often include humorous sexual tension between unlikely bedfellows, enough to elicit a chuckle from even the most stoic art lover. “I create a visual dialogue where everything is possible and magic is the queen,” says Diana. “[There is] a subtle injection of ambiguity that blurs the gap between the ordinary and the fantastic. The background of this sub-world appears to be transformed into an innocent children’s fantasy that almost looks like a dream.”
