Diana’s work is informed by personally significant landscapes where
ever-changing conditions are a metaphor for cause and effect
of life experiences.
The origins of the Organics series lies in the natural world with studies of the symbiotic nature of life, erosion and decay. Themes of human interactions with the land; where we have come from - and where we are going to - are intertwined with these observations.
The Organics series encompasses multiple ways of recording moments in time and place, study that is central to generating ideas and new explorations.
