Diana Jean Oliphant

"Reflections" is a meditation on self and de-compartmentalization. For many years I perceived my modeling as necessarily separate from my work as a painter. This series breaks down those barriers and explores the relationship between being an art model, and a painter. All the figures are painted from photographs other artists have taken of me. To paint myself from another’s perspective has helped me grow as person and an artist.
