Diane Fine


Born Brooklyn, New York 1960

The images in Diane Fine’s prints and books are about the poetry of solitude and memory.  They are about the comfort and poignancy of beauty, reminiscence and longing.  Searching for and creating this comfort are essential human endeavors. What we make and what we find are necessarily juxtaposed to the pain and suffering of loss. The rich morsels that we collect help us to live an existence in which answers may not be forthcoming to our most fundamental questions.

Diane has been a printmaker her entire adult life and, despite the fact that it is a process-oriented medium and very laborious, it is obvious that it is a natural working method for her.  Her prints and books are not only meticulous, they are truly inspired.  The fact that multiple copies of the same image enables her to share her work with many people is important to her.  Diane is currently a professor at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Her works are in many important public and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the New York Public Library, and Yale University Art Gallery.
