Diana Stelin’s work is about conversations between reality and abstraction, about a desire to co-exist with nature and dissolve into it at least some of the time, about a perfect marriage between man-made and natural objects. She employs a unique technique of melting cold wax and oil pigments in her expressive nostalgic landscapes.
Ms. Stelin’s ouevre is featured in private and corporate collections worldwide. She’s an award-winning educator, and author of ‘Searching for a Place to Call Home’.
This particular piece has consists of four layers of paint, where oil pigments and wax are intermixed. The very last layer is melted with a heating lamp, to achieve a compositional balance, as well as demonstrate our innate desire to blend with nature.
