Diann Kincaid’s painting career emerged as a young girl in the 60s. Her early days of artistic expression included large paintings of birds and colorful landscapes inspired by dozens of record album covers. Though primarily self-taught, the impact of standing behind talented artists influenced her own techniques to create magical compositions. Her painting style is fluid and directional, depicting still life, landscape planes, and emerging light sources. She is passionate about painting Alla Prima style, creating works of art known for their uncommon beauty and emotional influence.
Sculpting is Diann’s latest expression of creativity, and her time sculpting ranks as significant as her painting time. She deliberately expresses what she sees with simple undulating sweeps and rhythmic detail laid into clay or wax. In Diann’s recently published book, “Shadow Chasing in Sedona,” the “Sedona Shadows” sculpture is created as her most significant work in bronze. Each sculpture conveys an aura of intrigue, standing stoic, poised to reflect the pioneering attributes of a sacred land they once stood on.
Diann Kincaid bases her inspiration upon a proverbial quote by William Wadsworth, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” More than an artist depicting nature, people, and landscapes, her aim is to encourage an audience to view the world in a way they have never seen before.
