‘Ambrosia’ by Diana Watson
In a collection of ten stunningly composed oil paintings that each display a palette of earthy hues rich textural qualities, Australian artist Diana Watson’s latest body of work, Ambrosia, explores the honesty, beauty and appreciation of nature through the luscious intensity for which she is so international recognised. The collection, launching on May 4 2017 at Otomys Gallery in Melbourne, explores the sensuality and movement of everyday objects in new eyes, drawing the viewers attention to the detail, colour and rhythm of what makes each of these objects so uniquely beautiful. . .
Megan Dicks of Otomys Gallery explains how they are drawn to the rich and slightly abstract nature of Diana’s paintings and how they display a strong sense of drama and confidence that portrays a luxuriousness in the way the fabrics twist and drape.
