Born in Brooklyn, NY / Works in Brooklyn, NY
BIO
Diana Naccarato is based in New York City and has an MFA in Studio Art from The City College of New York (CUNY) and a BFA in Painting and Drawing from SUNY New Paltz. Recent residencies include SomoS, Berlin (virtual), Nocefresca in Sardinia, Italy, and Kunstraum, in Brooklyn, NY. She exhibits her work in the New York area and teaches Drawing and Two-Dimensional Design at the college level.
In my recent paintings, videos, drawings and photographs, I make ambiguous imagery with a quality of being simultaneously blurred and in-focus. I reference the natural and constructed environments of New York City, especially its beaches and parks, and take close-up photographs of my everyday surroundings. I work between media, often referencing personal photographs, videos and sound recordings to create abstract imagery in paint or pencil, then reference those works to create photo-based digital works. I aim to capture the elusive elements of my references β€”the movement and aliveness of the city and of the ocean. These explorations of form, structure and movement are deeply personal. I seek to connect with something larger than myself by connecting with the rhythms of my city, my memories of growing up next to the Atlantic Ocean, and my search for moments where I can be entirely still and open to the vibrant life force around me.
