I do love mutually exclusive phenomena, which, like a playful loving couple, ultimately become one. I have always loved exceptions and have to confess that I am seeking a password, a golden key, which will allow juxtaposing two incompatible things: realism and expressionism. To juxtapose the way good and evil , heaven and earth intertwine as a terrestrial proof that any stereotype, however strong it might be, is doomed to be broken someday… I love it when rigid stereotypes are broken…And you know what? God willing, one day I’ll succeed in doing it too.
For me, art is essential to the human experience. “A basic understanding and appreciation of the arts serves to broaden character and deepen the connections with those in our social circles” (A Passion for Jazz!™ 2007). I like to use my art as an opportunity to inform, educate, and ignite the interest of art lovers and students. The paintings I create depict the sounds, flavor, and vibrations of life and I hope that in some authentic way to generate an opportunity for communication and understanding.
Whether you're purchasing your first piece of Diana Ferguson Jewelry or your twentieth, my wish is that you'll always experience the joys of wearing distinctive adornments that look and feel great; that express your individuality; that let you fall in love with your style all over again!
My "Rock Star" series was inspired by the music and personalities that shaped a generation and continue to engage, enlighten, and empower the youth of today; these artists awakened our souls and shook the heavens above. Rock n' Roll is the heartbeat of our youth.
