Description

U.C. Berkeley graduate Diana Hansen has lived in Italy since 1963, after studying printmaking with Johnny Friedlaender in Paris.

Her images, like Dancer I, refer to the Native Amercan artwork from the U.S. Using a variety of intaglio techniques and bright colors her work reflects the Southwestern palette and Native American symbols.

While Hansen's prints are strongly influenced by Native American motifs, similarities to European artists such as Klee, Miro, and Kandinsky can be seen as well. As a printmaker, Hansen has experimented with a wide range of techniques and processes. Most recently, she developed her own technique of hand-painted relief prints.
