ARTIST Diane van Wyk

“It is not just about the doing but about the feeding of my soul and mind. It is who I am and I aim to invoke a subconscious response of memory from the viewer of my images”

Diane is a fine artist, based in Durban. Although she has had a passion for art her whole life, she has only recently been able to pursue this passion seriously. Diane enjoys working with oils mostly, on canvas, but has experience in mediums such as acrylics, inks and various other drawing media. Her focus is predominantly portraits and figurative work, but she also paints landscapes using her own technique and interpretations. Diane’s “Memoryscapes” capture real and imaginery places in such a way as to invoke an almost nostalgic reaction in the viewer.
