Diane Whalley
A Moment of Quiet
Original Painting
Framed Size: H 104cm x W 104cm
Presented in a White Wood Floating Frame

A Moment of Quiet is an original abstract expressionist painting by Diane Whalley. Layers of paint are applied to the canvas allowing mark making to reveal glimpses of what lies beneath and adding depth to the whole piece.

It is the lull before the storm which can be quite exhilarating as all is quiet and the air still but you can see the distant storm clouds creeping closer. it is a time to sit with a warming drink, blanket to hand, tucked in by the sand dunes and watching the sea beginning to swirl with seaweed as the air begins to change. There is cocooning haziness that brings a reassuring warmth to that moment of quiet. The end of summer and the mystery of Autumn begins in Cornwall.

Size: H:100 cm x W:100 cm

Diane Whalley has original artworks for sale with Wychwood Art in their art gallery and online. Diane Whalley has been creating and designing for a number of years across a number of disciplines, but since 2016 she began her adventure with abstract painting, mainly in acrylics, sometimes with oil pastel, graphite and mark making details. Her paintings are often a mix of layered muted colours with splashes of brighter shades, using abstract images and ethereal, painterly swathes resulting in fresh, light and immersive compositions. Through the layers of paint can be glimpsed images and detailing. She paints intuitively from the imagination and personal reflections. After graduating from Liverpool School of Art and Design with a BA (hons) degree Diane worked for a number of years for the media and PR agencies. It was after becoming a mum to two daughters that she returned to her love of art and design. At first she worked with textiles producing and selling quirky and colourful pictures in Warwickshire and Kent. When tragedy struck her family she was propelled onto a new path with her daughters deciding to make Cornwall her home. It was a time of reflection and learning to sail, with longs trips around the Mediterranean. This period has greatly influenced her work - full of contemplation, vibrancy, experimentation and expressionism. Diane now works from her garden studio and gallery at her home just on the outskirts of Fowey. Here she is surrounded by AONB and just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Cornish coastline, from where she draws some of her inspiration. Over the years her artworks have been exhibited in Kent, Warwickshire and Cornwall - including Cornwall Open Studios week and selected artworks for Penwith Gallery associate members summer exhibition 2018 and St.Ives Society of Artists winter exhibition 2019 - and she is represented in Oxfordshire by Wychwood Art. Diane’s artworks can be found in private collections in Paris, Dublin, Australia, South Africa and across the UK.
