Diana Baur Artist Bio:

Originally from London, I believe my father, who was an artist and industrial designer, inspired my early life and love of "˜all things visual'. I studied textile printing and dyeing at Whiteland's College Putney in the 1970s, developing a love of colour and design. My tutor, Nora Proud, included photographs of my work in the Batsford book 'Simple Textile Dyeing and Printing'. In 2010, I was awarded a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art at Glyndwr University, Wrexham, and have been painting and drawing ever since. This year, 2014 I completed my Masters in Fine Art Practice at the same University. I have developed an abstract expressionist style of painting reflecting my character and need to search for the "˜intangible" in life. I combine dyes and paints with collage and fabrics, layering, folding, shredding and tearing to create texture. I have a fascination with the role that fabric can play in an artwork, and can be quite destructive during the process, and frequently find that the end stages of a painting actually only begin after this destructive phase. This process has kindled an interest in the relationship between destruction and creation. These two appear to walk hand in hand, and I wonder sometimes if they are indeed perhaps inseparable? (Anselm Kiefer thinks so!) I am a founder member of the Inside Out Art Group : http://www.insideoutart.co.uk, and also a member of both the Borderland Visual Arts and Helfa Gelf Art groups. I exhibit and sell my work locally in venues such as Pandy Mill Gallery, The Willow Gallery Oswestry and Theatre Clwyd Mold. In 2010 I was short listed for the Signature Art Awards run by DegreeArt.com, and show and sell work in their gallery in London. In 2010 I was invited to display work in The Artists Alley, San Francisco (Galiara.com). I occasionally work to commission. Not all my work is displayed. October 2014 To see more of my latest works please also visit http://www.degreeart.com where some of my work is solely consigned to DegreeArt. ********* (I am proud to support CAT - The Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, having been a member since its first beginnings.) http://www.dianabaur.co.uk
