In Tapestries Ann Diener continues her ongoing investigation of place and time. Her faceted interpretation of the urban landscape transposes into a multi-dimensional weave of patterns and space. Diener’s mixed media works on paper focus on Los Angeles where she currently works and lives.
Diener’s interest lies not only in the historical configuration of the city and land, but also with the juxtapositions and interactions of the myriad of cultures that live there. The drawings are concentrated meditations on place, complex tapestries of information, fractured narratives that combine personal history, architecture, sociology, patterning and objects.
Diener has an MFA from UC Santa Barbara and has shown her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Southern California.
