Artists Statment

Diana Vanstone’s captivating sequel, “Lady Monkey II”, is a masterful exploration of the complexities of aging and experience. This wise and wistful primate, now slightly older and more refined than her predecessor, embodies the subtle nuances of maturity.  Gazing out with an air of knowingness, we see the depth of wisdom etched upon her face.

The inspiration behind “Lady Monkey II” stems from Vanstone’s fascination with the human experience of growing older and more self-assured. By portraying Lady Monkey in this new light, Vanstone invites us to reflect on our own journeys through life.   Acknowledging both the wisdom gained and the lingering doubts that come with age.

As we gaze upon this regal primate, we see into a world of subtle contrasts. Her radiant fur, a testament to the enduring power of beauty.  Her knowing eyes, a window into the depths of her soul; and her delicate hands, a reminder of the fleeting nature of life. The composition, too, is a masterclass in subtlety, with Vanstone employing bold brushstrokes to create a sense of depth and dimensionality.

In “Lady Monkey II”, Vanstone presents us with a profound meditation on the human condition – one that neither celebrates nor laments the passing of time, but rather seeks to capture its essence. This painting is at once a celebration of the beauty and wisdom that comes with age and a poignant exploration of our deepest desires and fears.
