A man pulls up his sleeve to reveal his collection of tattoos, his expression a mix of cool and pride. He rests on a counter covered with designs, possibly in a tattoo parlor. The brick wall behind provides warmth and contrast to the cool countertop and blue checked shirt. His playfully rendered hands a focal point of the painting.
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.”
