A portrait of a woman against a striking red backdrop, rendered in artist Diana Rosa's signature mix of folk and pop styles. Diana simplified the figure's features to their simplest forms while managing to accentuate the character and expression of the subject. Part of an ongoing series of works accentuating the feminine figure. "I frequently manipulate images of women used to demonstrate fashion," says Diana.
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.”
