Diane Kaiser works with a variety of media – collage, photography, printmaking, drawing, painting, and sculpture – always with an eye for the unexpected.
 
Two lines of inquiry prevail in her practice: an investigation into geometric structure and form – grounded and foundational; and a fascination with the subtleties of texture, pattern and movement – delicate, complicated, layered, evanescent. Often, the two approaches coalesce, as in her recent paper collages and photographs.
 
Drawing from a vast array of printed material for her collages, Diane fuses often contradictory elements into playful, spare compositions that transmute their humble sources into celebrations of color, line and shape.  Nods to contemporary design and art historical material enliven these works, adding layers of association and complexity.
 
In her photographs, she brings the viewer in close. With a keen eye for pattern, light and movement, every leaf or branch or slant of rain assumes a lively, visceral quality. 

Throughout her work, chance and order spar, seeking dynamic equilibrium.
