Diane Rosen 

An aesthetic of ambiguity fuels my work. Random patterns of spattered paint underlie figurative elements as they evolve, blurring boundaries between accident and design, text and subtext, familiar and strange. For me, this tension of uncertainty heightens both the mystery and the enjoyment. My background includes l'École des Beaux Arts, Paris, on a French Government Painting Fellowship; election to PSA (Pastel Society of America) Master Pastelist; listing in Who's Who's Who in American Art; and features in numerous publications such as The Pastel Journal and American Artist.
