Contemporary artist Diana Al-Hadid has continued to invent and reinvent visually distinct and compelling work that has received overwhelming international acclaim. With over 19 solo shows in the past nine years and an endless list of awards and inclusions in public collections, she continues to push limits in her transformation of materials. Born in Syria and currently based in Brooklyn, Al-Hadid is recognized for creating monumental sculptures and panels that cross cultural and artistic boundaries.
Here, Diana talks about her the process of finding inspiration when confronted with the perennial blank page. She talks us through her evolving body of work, her movement into figuration and her fascination with corrupting classical forms.
