Diane Novetsky’s paintings are built up in layers—like the strata of the earth—using a variety of acrylic-based mediums which echo the gritty qualities of natural sand and stone. Her work suggests imaginary landscapes or the shifting of geologic plates of the earth’s crust. Luminous veils of transparent color over textured surfaces evoke a strong sense of the internal forces, rhythms and energy of the earth and its bodies of water.
