DESCRIPTION

kasia kay art projects gallery is pleased to present Enough Space in the Head to Breathe, Diane Christiansen's second solo exhibition with the gallery that will feature several small scale oil on plaster paintings and one animation.   

 

Diane Christiansen's current work is about spaciousness and the experience of quieting the mind and moving things aside in order to create it. The artworks themselves are paintings on plaster, which attest to the activity of addition (painting and drawing) and subtraction (erasure through sanding) through which they are created. The slow, meditative, practice involved in their creation serves as an antidote to our current environment that is so full of speed, aggression and the barrage of information.
