My style, even though I don't like to label things, goes from expressionist-symbolism to spiritualism-surrealism . I wish to create and bring to life deep feelings and emotions on my canvases. In fact, I would like to paint the atmosphere of human experiences.
As an example , my painting http://dianeart.com/egg.html ( La vie a l'arrivee - The end of life ) I had just learned that my mother had cancer, it touched me so much and made me think about life. If you take a good look at this picture you will find a lot of symbols expressing my feelings at that time. . If you look attentively at the composition, you'll notice that it's in shape of a big "8", the symbol of infinity. For I believe life goes on for ever, it continues with your soul and in those that you left behind the ones you have influenced. That's why I have put a print of a hand (in yellow) behind the principal hand, it's a reference to the printed hands in the prehistoric caves. it reflects a shadow of what was left to humanity. As you can see, my paintings are very symbolic, therefore you need time to study them . my pictures are usually reflecting thoughts, feelings, and meditation... For me the purpose of my art it's not just for the beauty of it, it's even more for say something.
