Featured Gallery: Art Attack SF > Sin #7 (Vanity)
Loading real life preview
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 found medium grew.
Dyanna explores color + shape, material and texture to create a visual narrative. She presents a strong balance of chaos and order in her work. Focusing on ecology and the overload of today’s consumerism culture. Our modern obsession with vanity occasionally sneaks into her work.
Dyanna endlessly collects 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." Dyanna curates these materials in an intuitive way, like puzzle pieces.
Conscious of the consumerism cycle, she'd rather find her materials. We live with pollution. We accept it and it becomes invisible. She uses the found material as part of her palette to mimic this.
Keeping it fresh on the West Coast. Art Attack SF is an art space for contemporary work and community-minded pop-up events. The gallery features rotating exhibitions of emerging artists primarily from the Bay Area and surrounding West Coast. Established in 2012, the gallery is located in San Francisco’s vibrant Castro district.
