Diane Bertolo works with pixels, paper, sticks and stones to create works that mix chaos with logic as they mark the passage of time and the end of nature. Her “poetic objects” and installations pose questions that are unspeakable in our first language.
Her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions including Wish You Were Here: The Buffalo Avant Garde of the 1970s at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, today.getDate(), a one-person show at the Burchfield-Penny Art Center, Some Assembly Required: Collage Culture in Postwar America at the Everson Museum and Telematic Connection: The Virtual Embrace at the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been shown in numerous media festivals including the Mostra de Video Independent in Barcelona, Spain and the LA Freewaves Festival at MOCA in Los Angeles. Fellowships include The New York Foundation for the Arts (1995 and 2001), The Jerome Foundation and Greenwall Foundation (via Turbulence.org) and The National Endowment for the Arts.
