Diana Tremaine’s dynamic oil paintings are autobiographical, yet simultaneously universal, reflecting a search for meaning in the human experience. They often focus on family and children at play, with a style that bridges figuration, representation, and still life. Their complex surfaces convey a history by layering and eliminating in a push-pull fashion to reveal what is most essential, evoking collective memories like ghosts of what once was.
