Summertime Dreams 2 by Lana Alsamir-Diamond - Is part of a series, this work is a return to my early works, Beautiful, Bold ink lines that tell a story, the Sun the Moon and the magical little allies are all here.
I am constantly dreaming of faraway places, the restraint needed to create my more minimal works sometimes gently gives way to equally minimal but more figurative works, the Architecture of the Greek Islands and memories of star gazing under towering mediterranean palm trees, are a constant in my work.
Alsamir-Diamond's love of the moon in it's many faces is apparent in her work, they are a recurring motif, it has a constant presence in her work, "It offers my landscapes a familiarity, and a warmth" the artist feels.
Original artwork: Ink on hand made cotton paper, with deckled edges in natural colour.

Ink on handmade cotton paper with deckled edges in natural colour
Based in: Sydney
A Sydney based artist who made her way here via product design. Alsamir-Diamond's work is graphic minimal yet bold, work that is very personal and reminiscent of the Artist’s life, packed with cultural influences and references.
Silhouettes and composition are the primary interest of the work, a sensitivity for negative space creates the perfect groundwork for colour, which is almost a distraction to the artist but a very welcome one.
"I feel my work is very intuitive and involves a fair amount of restraint, for that reason I sometimes find myself producing work that involves more figurative elements, it is almost an instinctive need to be in control, I love the dialogue that two of my pieces can have in the same space. "
Medium and process
Lana loves working on paper, she feels paper is unforgiving and translates her vision beautifully.
The artist uses hand made, 100% cotton rag paper in a natural colour with deckled edges.
Paints with Japanese ink, gouache, and only the finest acrylic paints.
Most of the work is on natural coloured paper, the colour is a very light off-white, it may sometimes photograph at different shades.
