Diane Laundy

An Ottawa based artist, Diane Laundy’s photographic work is both strongly graphic and deceptively simple.  Exploring shape, colour and rhythmic patterns, her work focuses on both natural and urban subjects, often elevating details overlooked by others.

Artist Statement:

The influence of textiles strongly informs the way I photograph – looking for patterns, texture and structure in both the urban and natural worlds – and informs how I create and present my images. I create composite images that juxtapose and overlay colours, patterns and textures found in the original photographs. The resulting photographic “textiles” are a highly interpretative re-imagining of the original subject matter.

I have also experimented with unconventional forms to the final image. My exhibition ‘Fabrications’ was hung from rods and ribbons, in the manner of a quilt. My recent experiments have included the physical manipulation of the photographic image through folding, crumpling or stitching the paper.

THE HOUSE THE SPIRIT BUILDS: Coinciding with the Kingston WritersFest happening Sept. 25 to 29, Studio 22 is exhibiting a work that blends the visual and the literary arts. THE CONCERT SERIES: Rapin’s The Concert Series was inspired by a concert she attended at The Isabel Bader Centre while sitting in the front row in 2017.
The House the Spirit Builds reminds us that joy and inspiration can be found in the smallest of things and that it is in our quest for a sense of belonging that we are united. The poems and photographs seen together are an invitation to expand our sense of wonder and our sense that all things are connected.
Influenced by textiles and quilts and the way they are created and combined, Laundy’s technique involves cutting and arranging the same image, a series of images, or parts of images.
