Canto One

The Hide and Seek Series:
An Archaeological Excavation of Memory
A Work in Progress

Artist's Statement
"Mystery cannot be put into words."
--Joseph Cornell

Canto Two

The story I am going to tell comes from a place deep inside of myself, a place that perceives all that I have irredeemably lost and perhaps, what gain there is behind the loss. If some people forget their past as a way to survive, other people remember it for the same reason.
Of Water and the Spirit
--Malidoma Patrice Some

Canto Three

In Diane's Words
I have forgotten and now I am remembering.
This work in progress is my most recent and addresses issues of self, gender identification and intimacy. My starting point in each piece are lines of poetry by Vicente Huidobro, the Chilean Surrealist poet. Using the Surrealist poetic concept of the "cut up" as a model, I am creating a new poem from the selected fragments of Huidobro's work. The images in the series are numbered and when placed in order, will create a new poem which is autobiographical in nature.

Output for this series is to 34" x 47" Iris inkjet prints on Arches 356 paper.
