Copper plate photogravure is a complex process with many variables. “These magical, unstable floating worlds are populated by primordial plants and a burlesque assortment of monsters, grotesques and ridiculously cute characters, all apparently deep in conversation. Sourced from medieval mythology, sixteenth-century European prints and contemporary Japanese ‘kawaii’, Dianne’s surreal creatures play out open-ended stories. Just like life itself, their meaning remains unclear.” Sue Forster, exhibition opening speech, Gold Street Gallery, November 20, 2016.
