Artists Statement

Diana Vanstone’s “Piece of Paradise” is a masterclass in subtlety.  Presenting a delicate orchid against a backdrop of stark blackness that seems to suck the air out of the room. The flower itself is a marvel of precision and nuance, its petals unfolding like the pages of a rare book.

The artist’s choice of subject matter is deliberate, a nod to the fleeting nature of beauty and the fragility of life. The orchid, often associated with luxury and refinement, takes on a new meaning in this context, serving as a potent symbol of the ephemeral nature of paradise itself.

Vanstone’s use of color is equally evocative, opting for a palette that is both subdued and rich. The deep blacks and muted tones serve to amplify the flower’s natural beauty, drawing our attention to its intricate details and delicate curves. It’s as if Vanstone has distilled the essence of paradise into this one, exquisite moment.

The sterile black background serves as a foil to the flower’s beauty, highlighting its fragility and mortality. It’s a potent reminder that even the most exquisite things are subject to the ravages of time and decay. And yet, despite this sense of impermanence, the orchid remains resplendent, a beacon of hope and resilience in the face of uncertainty.

Ultimately, “Piece of Paradise” is a meditation on the fleeting nature of beauty and the fragility of life. The painting invites us to pause and reflect on the transience of our most precious moments, and the beauty that can be found in even the smallest and most delicate things.
