Diane Churchill

Artist Biography

Diane Churchill is an abstract painter living in Nyack, NY with a studio at the Garner Arts Center, West Garnerville, NY. Her recent work references the flow of water, the movement of air, along with the accompanying emotions of these forces. Interpreting the natural world, from sun, plant life, to water, is her constant obsession.

Churchill has recently shown at Blue Hill Cultural Center and Soho 20 Gallery. Most recent solo shows were at the Julio Valdez Project Space in East Harlem and Union Arts in Sparkill, NY and previously at the Garnerville Arts Center, Pomona Cultural Center and Karpeles Museum. She has also exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair in NYC as well as the University of Knoxville Gallery, New World Stages, the Construction Company, Blue Door Gallery, Rockland Center for the Arts, and Museo Regional in Michoacan, Mexico, among others.

In February, 2016, she was honored with a residency at the Gowry Foundation in Kerala, India. Memories of this immersion continue to inform her work. Previous residencies have been at "Soaring Gardens", Pennsylvania, Fundacion Valparaiso in Mojacar, Spain, and Yaddo.

Artist STATEMENT

I make images to produce a state of wonder.
For that I look at suns and moons, activity of wind, water and time, and the flourishing or desiccated coverings of the earth.

The paintings are in praise of our natural world, but also metaphors for human emotions.
