Diane McLean

The primary motivation in my work is the

exploration of light. It could be light from the side describing the forms and textures of a still life; diffused light from a skylight caressing the flesh of a figure in a studio; or a landscape illuminated by the light unique to our part of the world. After all, it is with light that our surroundings become visible and are given form.

Diane received a Master’s Degree in Fine Art from Rhodes University in 1987.

Currently a full-time resident in De Rust, South Africa.
