Dianne Cuzner is a painter and photographer based in western Canada. The artist has an eye for bright, exciting color, an aesthetic that carries over into works that deal with peaceful coastal subject matter; landscapes and bodies of water.
In her artistic practice, Dianne expresses a genuine love for the art form. She combines numerous influences from her personal life and her surrounding environment, creating images that are sometimes abstracted and sometimes expressive of a very particular place and time. I like the way that Dianne incorporates a brighter-than-life colour palette into many of her works, infusing each image with extra life and vitality.
Dianne’s photography portfolio is packed with examples of experimentation – I rather enjoy Dianne’s photographs of fireworks. In these images, the bursts of light are captured along with the inevitable movements of the hand-held camera, creating a work of photography where the artist’s hand is unusually present.
