A mixed media piece about the first of the seven deadly sins, Lust. This piece is stretched canvas with acrylic, ink lines on top of that, that represent computer circuits. Then different height retro computer keyboard keys that flow in rows. They contain lusty words, like a word search. Five of the keys have makes on them to represent dirty fingerprints. Silver duct tape lines one side. The idea is that we are stuck on these devices, lusting and obsessing over things we cannot have, women, men, objects. Sides painted and hanger on back. This is a very delicate piece. The textures and colors are so beautiful in person. Light plays off the various raised keys.
An ecological consciousness lies close to the heart of California native Dyanna’s art, which incorporates reused material and found objects. While studying sculpture at UC Santa Cruz, her interest in found medium grew. Dyanna currently lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
