Feral Exhibition
Diane Chipchase

As an artist, Diane Chipchase draws inspiration from the natural world. She takes pleasure from making work which uses the natural landscape and then contradicts its own naturalness. She seeks to explore the juxtaposition of natural and man-made worlds as well as the potential communication and symbiotic association between the two.

Recent considerations have been the physical and metaphysical relationships between and animate and inanimate objects. The hybridisation of two such items by a physical blending has led to the production of new creations which challenge the eye as well as the intellect. However, when the relationship becomes metaphysical, it provokes the viewer to make a leap of faith and imagination themselves. They have to stand in the void and discover what lies in that space. Diane enjoys tantalising her audience by creating work which asks questions, but does not necessarily offer all the answers.
