Artists Statement

Diana Vanstone’s “Hypnotiser” is a painting that holds you spellbound, like a snake charmer’s melody. A zebra, dawning its stripes like gentle whispers.  Gazing out with an unnerving intensity, as if mesmerized by the rose it holds in its mouth.

We see Vanstone’s brushstrokes here are bold and expressive.  Imbuing the zebra’s features with a sense of quiet authority. The way she captures the subtle curves of the animal’s lips, the softness of its gaze, is nothing short of masterful.

But what truly sets “Hypnotiser” apart is its use of depth blur.  This creates an eerie atmosphere that pulls you in like a vortex. The zebra’s back, shrouded in misty uncertainty.  It emerges as metaphor for the unknown, or the unconscious, waiting to be explored.

Vanstone has said that she drew inspiration from the world of mysticism and symbolism.  A place where animals represent vessels for spiritual insight. And indeed, “Hypnotiser” feels like a gateway to another realm, one where the rational and irrational blend seamlessly.

As we gaze upon this enigmatic painting, we fall into its hypnotic thrall.   We must confront our own deepest desires and fears. It’s an experience that’s both disorienting and exhilarating. Like being lost in a dream from which you can’t awaken.
