Diane Ayott

For Orlando

Diane Ayott’s abstractions are luxuriously physical objects resulting from the accrual of layer after layer of paint, color, and pattern, launched by imaginative titles into the realm of language, play, and political engagement. In the opulent surfaces of Ayott’s paintings, the eye experiences depth and continual movement, both spatial and aesthetic, as the mind integrates, deconstructs, and re-integrates the parts into wholes, weaving in new experiences and feelings over time as the viewer lives with her art.

Diane Ayott resides and maintains a studio in Salem MA and is a Professor of Art at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly MA. She is represented by Trident Gallery and by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in New York City and Bridgehampton NY.
