Diane Holland American


Having been trained in painting and printmaking as well as intermedia, and having previously used electrotransfer, Diane Holland's studio practice now involves advanced forms of drawing and collage as well as photographic printing  (most recently Fujiflex and metallic Kodak Endura) to interpret the relationship that develops between human beings and the media artifacts they create. 


The series of images entitled "Somatic Telesthesia" focuses on the kinds of technological interactions that impact upon the individual on both a personal and a cultural level. That focus is expanded in the artist's current series, “Palimpsestic Metanoia.” These works translate personal experience into imagery that is at once digital and painterly. The source material for electrostatic and photographic composite alike is drawn from real and imagined experience and engage a collage aesthetic appropriate to the multivalent sensory possibilities of our time.
