A nude stands in a surreal environment, flanked by flamingos. She wears a golden headscarf with flowers, and ornate makeup. The two birds on her left and right offer protection while she caresses the third animal. Stylized plant life rises up behind them in the dark landscape. Diana says, "Elegance and sensuality are combined with spirituality in a contemplative, surreal environment."
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.”
