Inspired by the bold and colorful patchwork stretches of land only visible from high above, Diana has created stunning compositions. These uncommon works of form, color and texture offer the viewer an opportunity to appreciate the landscape less as a depiction of reality and more as a unique configuration. Each piece is an amalgam of gypsum, cement and a binding agent, reinforced with fiberglass allowing for light-weight relief. Dry pigments and glazing are used to create a jewel-like surface of texture while preserving clarity of form.
