Diana Hillman is a Caledon artist who works primarily in oils. Her award-winning paintings have been featured in solo and juried shows in Canada and the U.S.
Her Road Works series, based on fleeting glimpses of the landscape as seen through what Annie Liebowitz has called “the ready-made picture frame of the car window.”
Diana’s new series, Flight, is based on photographs she’s taken of the landscape and in airports while travelling alone.
“This is the way most of us see the landscape now” says Diana, “in fleeting glimpses while on the move.” Using deliberately and delicately blurred oil paint, chalk and pencil, Diana captures mood, movement and light in her work. Whether her subjects are views of highways, bridges or the countryside, often seen from the air, her paintings have a dreamy, other-worldly feel that often evokes a sense of isolation or deja vu.
Diana’s work has been called haunting and quiet, elegant and charming.
Diana attended art schools in Montreal, Toronto and the U.K.
She is a founding member of Silver Creek Arts project, 2013 Headwaters Artisan of the Year, a collective which holds an Annual Art Show at historic Silver Creek Farm every autumn and shows regularly in Caledon and the GTA. To see more about Silver Creek Arts Project please visit:
