About the artist...

Diane Giles’ artwork is about abstracting the figure in order to emphasize each painting’s story. While her paintings are figurative, they are also interpretive. Her goal is to place the figure within an abstract narrative instead of depicting the figure with attention to the details of realism. The paintings are layers of acrylic paint, charcoal, and pastel. Marks that happen during the creative process are allowed to remain, giving clues to how the  artwork was developed. The figures that are created may seem to appear and disappear on the canvas, evoking a mystery of a fleeting impression and allowing the viewer to use their imagination to fill in the context.
