ON DISPLAY: "Stream of Consciousness" by Diane Riesing
“Stream of consciousness” would best describe how I think of my abstract and semiabstract painting. The shapes, marks, textures and colors tend take on organic forms evoking landscape, seascape, plant and animal life. My paintings evolve from a subliminal world of ideas and feelings that show themselves in the process of creation. I am inspired by the source of dreams and cultural symbols, and search for them in my art.
I find success in my painting when I recognize those images in a composition and it is most gratifying when others do also. My preferred medium is oil and cold wax, which lends itself well to my vision, as it is a painting process employing multiple layers creating and destroying until the right image appears. My paintings develop over weeks and months of revision as I search for their ultimate expression.
I initially trained at Washington University School of Fine Art and while I never stopped creating works, I could be described as a “Return to Art” person after a
career in Psychiatric Social Work. This undoubtedly informs my vision in ways I may never fully realize. I have additional training from Webster University in
drawing and painting. During the last several years, I have exhibited at local venues such as the Kirkwood Train Station via the Kirkwood City Arts Council, Powder Valley Recreation Center, various libraries and banks, Clayton Fine Art Gallery, Old Orchard Gallery with MySLArt, Art St. Louis, and Confluence of Expression on line competition. I am a juried member of Greater St. Louis Art Association and volunteer with Arts as Healing and MySLArt.
