The complex paintings and works on paper composed by Diane Ayott show strong evidence of engagement in the contemporary language of abstraction. Layered combinations of markings – dots, dashes, lines, slashes, circles, ovals and loops –contribute to sophisticated, overall spatial patterns and color shifts. Pleasure in the visual is made clear in her work and invites repeated viewing.
Diane Ayott has exhibited extensively in New England, New York, Washington DC, and Chicago. Ayott’s paintings are represented in many private, contemporary collections.
