Diane Benoit du Rey

For Diane Benoit du Rey, painting is first and foremost the representation of luminous impressions, a game between space, form and light. She projects coloured screens onto scenes produced in the studio, and the light runs and spreads to embrace the form, to confuse or reveal volumes, to structure or distort space.


Then comes the painting, a nuanced revelation on the affixed canvas, a minimalist capture of the chosen moment, a pure aesthetic experience, a painting of light.
