12x12 Artist: Diana J Smith

Diana Smith, Moscow II, Acrylic; Mixed Media
Q: Tell us how you created this piece.

Smith: This painting called Moscow II is derived from applying exotic papers first. The papers become the backdrop and set the color palette, but also intermingle with the subject of the painting. The result is unexpected and loose.

Q: How is this work similar to or different from your other artwork? 

Smith: My new work is incorporating maps, found materials, post cards, exotic papers, even fabric, and more collage.

Q: In what upcoming venues might audiences be able to see your work? 

Smith:  My paintings are always at Contemporary Art Gallery, 2928 Paseo (Co-op Artist’s Gallery). Wed-Sat, 12-5pm, and the first Friday of the month 6-10pm.

October, 2010 - In Your Eye Gallery on Paseo will feature a sneak preview of Diana J. Smith, Gayle Curry, Janice Mathews-Gordon & Natalie Friedman’s work. This will be a glimpse of the new work they are preparing for their October 2011 IAO Gallery show.
