Diana Harrison - Breaking the Waves

‘Diana’s work is always experimental, which, through the process of exploration in the making, both in terms of the subject matter and in the choice of materials and techniques, often results in something enigmatic, ambitious, disturbing even. Whilst she has found a way of bringing an image together which is formally successful, the difficulty in pinning down the story behind the images often leads to interesting conversations which trigger dormant personal associations and inspire ideas for further work.’

This interest in making felt experience visible has been at the centre of Diana’s practice since she graduated from St Martin’s School of Art in the 1980s when her decision to go to art school interrupted a career as a journalist on national magazines. Moving to Spain in 1997, where she qualified and worked as a teacher of English as a foreign language, she also developed a strong interest in photography. Returning to the UK and moving to Kent in 2011, she continued to explore and investigate her area of special interest as a student on the MA Fine Art at the University of the Creative Arts in Canterbury. Diana has opened her studio to the public, run workshops, become an active member of the local art community and exhibited in Cumbria and the South East particularly in various venues in Folkestone. She has work in collections in Brazil, France, Spain and the United Kingdom.
