Diana Chapman

 

Diana will be exhibiting with IBBAS for the first time in 2017.

Becker’s wonderful pictures of Suffolk show the production of food for an ever -growing population and remind me of the Arts and Crafts Movement with its focus on the dignity of hard work and craftsmanship.

But his work is much more than just a chronicle. His use of colour and freedom of mark making capture the movement and light of the landscape and weather as much as the workers themselves.

My most recent landscape studies reflect this. The feeling of being grounded and having a relationship to the land, of breathing the Suffolk air, with the wind in your face, of the light and colours of the region and of working quickly and in the moment.
