Diana Edmunds’ site-specific works use acrylic, neon and fibre optics to celebrate and explore the play of light, mutability and movement.
In 2018 Edmunds contributed Square Dance to Cure3 as an edition of three that proved extremely desirable! We are therefore delighted that this year, Square Dance 2 will again be an edition of three.
Edmunds has once again played with the architecture of the cube, creating both havoc and order within the space. Our eyes take time to decipher the geometry, light and reflections and even the brass sheet plays tricks on our perception. Being a part of Cure3 is a cause that is close to the artist’s heart:
“I have a particular interest in finding a cure for Parkinson’s as I have two friends with the condition. One, an academic and daughter of close friends, was diagnosed in her thirties. A working mother with two small children, she underwent surgery for DBS (deep brain stimulation) some time ago which has helped her considerably, and enabled her to continue working so I know just how important it is to keep fighting for new treatments to help the condition. The other friend diagnosed over ten years ago is a talented artist whose courage in facing his condition is an inspiration to us all. It is for them and those all over the world with Parkinson’s that I wanted to make my small contribution to the fight by creating something for the 2020 Cure3 exhibition.”
