Amy Diener Artist Statement:
I am a painter and art educator originally from New York. I love Bangkok, Thailand, and surrounding areas. My inspiration to live in this country sparked from an initial desire to pursue meditation, but slowly evolved into a place I could experience my daily life in. As an artist, the first thing I noticed was all the beautiful, bright colors of Bangkok. I observed and perceived the golden temples, hot pink taxis, lime green motorcycles, cyan blue malls, magenta apartments, forest green leaves, and violet flowers. At the beaches, I noticed the tan sands, and turquoise blue waters. All these colors provoked emotions of zeal, excitement and happiness; they were colors I was inspired to use in my paintings. My artwork investigates how the use of vibrant color and brushwork can affect your present mood in a positive way. I specialize in commissioned portrait paintings, depicting the essence of the person. However, I also paint subjects such as animals, flowers, landscapes, fantastical architecture, and pure abstraction using these vivid colors and large bold brushstrokes. I hope to bring you to a world of love and joy through my artwork.
Kimberlynn Marie Artist Statement:
The beauty of nature is all around us. I capture this beauty by taking photographs of these simple everyday moments in nature. I use photography because it allows me to present an unseen wonderful that exists in a world that many consider mundane. Through a zoomed in view, a new bazaar landscape is created; allowing the viewer’s perception to reengage, resulting in a renewed appreciation.
