Dyanna Dimick’s thoughtful explorations combine found objects from San Francisco with paint to create 3-D spaces that explore our relationships with land and sea, the visible and hidden, and consumer consciousness.

ARTIST STATEMENT/BIO

DYANNA DIMICK lets material and her eco-friendly lifestyle drive her creative process.
An ecological consciousness lies close to the heart of California native Dyanna’s art, which incorporates reused and found material. While studying sculpture at UC Santa Cruz, her interest in these mediums grew.

Dyanna’s process starts well before a blank canvas. She sees paintings everywhere. Noticing and collecting pieces from her surroundings to use as material. This keeps her attuned to her environment. “Our eyes tune out thousands of objects around us because we don’t have a current need for them or they don’t seem important to us.” The sun bleached plastic, the inside of an envelope, these daily materials are necessary for her process. Dyanna curates the found pieces in an intuitive way, like a puzzle. If you take time to look, they often tell a story.

Conscious of the consumerism cycle, she’d rather find her materials and create work with things that already exist in the world. We live with pollution. We accept it and it becomes invisible. She uses the found material as part of her palette to mimic this.

Dyanna explores color + shape, material and texture to create a visual narrative, in her sustainable collages. Focusing on ecology and the overload of today’s consumerism culture. Politics and our modern obsession with vanity occasionally sneak into her work.

Dyanna lives and works in California.
