Introducing new artist Diana Stetson

Some know her by her Chinese artist name, “Red Elegance.” Still more know her by Diana Stetston. But whatever name you know her by, we’re sure you’ll agree that Diana’s artwork fits well with the Chemers Gallery “style”!

Diana Stetson mixed media monotype print

Hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Diana’s stunning mixed media paintings and monotypes are elegant and sophisticated with a distinct Asian influence. Every artwork is richly layered in material, meaning and method. Diana’s bold line work found in her monotypes pairs exquisitely with the soft background colors and richly hued vintage papers and ephemera she incorporates through chine-colle. Select works even contain poems hand-lettered by Diana.

Diana’s monotypes  feature her unique “chop” – a hand-carved stamp with her Chinese artist name, given to her by renowned calligrapher Jat See Yeu. Diana has proudly been using this name and chop since 1980 when she studied in Hong Kong.

Diana Stetson mixed media painting

Adding to her repertoire are Diana’s delightful mixed media on birch panel creations. Using layer upon layer of acrylic paint, she slowly builds her background through color and texture. Paint layers are sanded smooth on the panel or left to build structure for her final layer of collage and oil paint. Sometimes Diana will utilize stencils within her backgrounds to introduce an Arts & Crafts Frank Lloyd Wright feel. Her collage materials can be anything from vintage papers to cut up acrylic paint peels.

Come in to experience Diana’s Zen work for yourself! We promise it will calm your soul!
