Diana Valarezo

Diana is a multifaceted, Ecuadorian artist. She lives between Belgium and Ecuador. She works with painting, mixed media, photography, printing, installation and performance. Her nomadic life and her sojourns in China, Senegal, Peru and Myanmar have enhanced her reflection on the symbiosis and exchange between cultures and their reciprocal influences. “Since its beginning my work has been a reflection on memory, remembrance and inner travel, which later became the real fact of displacement, migration, the search for identity and roots, its unifying thread has been and continues to be, the journey. Through these years of work I have built scenarios or series that are the reflection of my transit within the emotional and geographical displacement, creating images and metaphors of what surrounded me in those moments. My work transmutes from one subject to another, from one technique to another, with which I try to demonstrate these experiences, these skin changes, the mutations of being. "Memory Beings" is the last series that I am developing where it is an intimate and very personal attempt to give life to the ghosts of memory, to the reunification with my personal roots through the primary beauty of nature.”
