Indian ink on paper.
Diane Prince (Nga Puhi, Ngati Whatua and Ngati Kahu) was born in Wellington in 1952. She was educated at Teachers Training College in Wellington, Victoria University and the University of Auckland. She is currently teaching at Te Wanaanga O Raukawa in Otaki.
Diane is a multimedia artist: painter, weaver, installation art practitioner and an award winning set designer, who has been exhibiting nationally and internationally during her art career. Her work is a visual expression of her strong stand on Maori rights and Mäori women's issues.
Prince's new series of works in Indian ink crackle with complexity. They don't just celebrate and venerate, they dissect and erupt. Her drawings form pulsating organic wholes which see language in the midst of the battle of dying and being reborn, of being colonised and overcoming - like a viral attack in a Petri dish (Mark Amery, 2008)
