Description: Diane Churchill describes the genesis of this 1996 painting entitled "Oh, Sister": "In Istanbul, I had the sense of reaching through centuries into an ancient world of matriarchal cultures rich with goddess images. This painting came about as a direct result of that trip." Churchill's art has often dealt with issues of women and culture. In layering personal and borrowed images, Churchill combines realism and abstraction.|
Churchill's most recent series "The Shimmering World" is increasingly abstract using the rich colors and textures of the East but with less specific historical references.
