DIANA ROIG Artist Bio:

Born in 1982 Mar del PLata, Argentina. Lives and works in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. ‘The mind is like a richly woven tapestry in which the colors are distilled from experiences of the senses, and the design drawn from the convolutions of the intellect.’ (Carson McCullers, American writer, 1917-1967.) My collective work is a study of the transformative nature within the process of painting. Nurtured and driven by personal experiences, altered states of consciousness and an urge to communicate by the act of painting. Translated into abstraction, color and form. I am influenced by natural growth, biological processes and fractals. I also have a great fascination for evolution, survival of the fittest, new species, transformations and perception. Each painting, in a way, tells its own story and becomes a framework for perceptual faculties that address our associative mind. I strive to blur the lines between abstraction and figuration by subconsciously suggesting forms and primordial organic shapes. I invite the viewer to make his or her own image; an unique experience distilled from their own frames of reference; to create a new world of their own. I like to think we all have the ability to colour our world as we imagine it, adding some pink to the blue Monday of the daily routine or yellow out the Payne's grey or red hue, and be glad to have survived the titanium white. I made some with a camera snapshotting the process that you can watch as a sequence here: http://vimeo.com/user9084886/yellow or here: http://vimeo.com/43193298 I probably should mention and add to the story that these works have been made over a significant period of time. Growing into their own for maybe 4 to 6 or more months. I work continuously on a painting until it reaches the point of forms grown into each other, adding tiny bits of detail that make my practise a bit monastery towards the end. Studied Fine Arts at the Willem de Kooning academy, graduated in 2007. //Also really likes to indulge in art performances by dear friends like Mette Sterre, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and Jasper Griepink. // *yes, this is a shout out to the ones I love. At the moment I am itching for something new and up for a good challenge. www.dianaroig.com
