Diction: New Work by Diane Ayott

Diction: New Work by Diane Ayott, 2010
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, New York, NY


"Ayott’s lines and marks come into focus as we near and the penmanship takes on a precision. But Ayott’s precision avoids rigidity and is often a loosely applied geometry as evidenced in her method of patterning. There is a sense that the work is both a study and a doodle, serious and curious; a habit that enjoys fleshing out the meaning by writing it out over and over again. As viewers we read the results, the surface, the play of line, color and the again and again."
