Diane Churchill

Above/Below –

   To me, each of these paintings is an ecstatic cry in the face of our endangered world.

   Above/Below could refer to sky and land, or heaven and earth.  My interest in the vertical placement of two areas is aesthetic excitement.

    I apply many layers of paint and often draw into them with transparent oil crayons or pastels.  I like the “pentimientos” or echoes of marks underneath hinting at the life of the painting as it develops.
