Diana Elrod

Diana Elrod has been creating mixed media art for about 15 years and her work has been shown in galleries since 2010. Diana is becoming recognized for creating resonant images that evoke the particular pang of shared human experience: adolescent alienation, connection with animals, and themes such as religion, feminism, and family. Her art is witty, provocative, and sometimes tragic. She is a self-taught artist who works in mixed media, collage and oil painting. Her work reflects the surrealists in her juxtaposition of unlikely objects. When she starts a piece, Diana has ideas about what she wants the focal point to be and set ways of laying down collage elements. Beyond that, it is different every time. Her main goal is visual interest, rather than a "statement" (unless the piece is very specific to a themed show). And she wants to create layers, so images and collaged elements are overlapping. She also wants to create depth by painting shadows around certain objects.
