Rena Diana

I am drawn to geometric elements and linear designs in both the urban and the natural worlds, finding particular beauty in the interweaving of layers and patterns. My art begins with an observation or an idea, sometimes based on one of my photographs, and the sensations ignited by it. Then, as I paint and make marks, each piece takes on its own rhythm, its own essence, guiding me along. Other times, I simply start playing with paint, and a scene emerges, a dance begins, a light shines. My most recent artworks are Abstract Landscapes, inspired by the glacially carved shoreline of Lake Champlain, Vermont, and the magical interplay of light, wind, stones and water there. In the end, I hope to evoke imagination, wonder, and a sense of infinite possibility- the same sparks that fuel me when I am painting.
