Diane Meyer is a Los Angeles based artist whose work combines photography and embroidery, creating mixed media objects that questions the idea of memory, our construction of history and our relationship with the past.
Her artworks are part photography and part hand-stitched pixelated color patterns that at the same conceal and reveal information, making us think what’s lost and what’s gained in this media translation where a thread takes the place of an image.
Diane’s work has been exhibited in dozens of galleries in the United States and abroad and is part of important art collections. And while it is not traditional collage, her work has been collected in titles as central to the genre as The Age of Collage, published by Gestalten.
And as there is nothing we like more than exploring the boundaries of what we understand as collage, we talked to her to learn more about her work, influences and process.
