Artists Statement

In “Hands,” Diana Vanstone presents an intimate and unflinching portrayal of the human body.  Stripping away distractions to reveal the quiet beauty of its most fundamental form. This masterful anatomical study, featuring two lower arms and hands in a deliberately staged pose.  It is a meditation on the intricacies of human connection.

The painting’ s simplicity belies its depth. Vanstone’ s precise brushstrokes bring forth the intricate details of skin, bone, and tendon. The artist’ s focus on the hands themselves is a deliberate choice.  Highlighting their role as messengers of emotions, gestures of affection, and tools for creative expression.

At its core, “Hands” is an exploration of the subtle yet profound ways in which we communicate with one another, often without words. Vanstone invites us to contemplate the expressive potential of even the most mundane actions – a raised eyebrow, a gentle touch, or a firm handshake. The painting’ s contemplative atmosphere encourages us to slow down and appreciate the beauty in these everyday gestures.

The artist’ s inspiration for this work stems from her own fascination with the human form and its infinite capacity for expression. “I wanted to capture the quiet intimacy of human connection,” Vanstone explains, “and explore the ways in which our hands can convey a wealth of emotion, even in silence.” Through her masterful handling of color and composition, Vanstone creates an environment that is both contemplative and uplifting.  A true celebration of the beauty and complexity of the human experience.

In “Hands,” Diana Vanstone presents a work that is at once deeply personal and universally relatable.  A testament to the power of art to capture the essence of our shared humanity.
