Diane Foug’s practice has four areas of concentration: sculpture, painting, drawing, and printmaking. Each one of these areas informs the others and is rooted in experimentation with materials and processes. Every piece takes shape through the interplay between deliberate and accidental marks and shapes. These decisions and actions link together over time and are reconsidered and edited over and over again. The result is a non verbal, visual language which can appear loose and gestural, but is highly organized and intentional.
Diane’s work is concerned with the gestural quality of line and the physicality of art making—the strength, endurance, and skills of the artist in service to the natural properties of the materials. It is within this push and pull that the work takes shape.
