Biography of Diana Francia Gómez Ordóñez Colombian Artist

"Diana Francia, as a good expressionist with her authenticity, has continuously led the process of the German George Grosz and Otto Dix, in addition to the Colombians Ángel Loochkartt, Umberto Giangrandi, Carlos Granada ... with their stamp of sensuality and eroticism.

Like good night owls, the Expressionists advance through the depths of the night and fill their canvases and papers with worldly stars that display their mutant faces and their feminine, masculine or androgynous spirit. Felines and birds of prey, spot their victims with an accurate gaze, capture them, extract their spirits ”.

 

Fernando Guinard - Director Museum of American Erotic Art

 

 

"The technique that Diana Francia uses is of utmost importance for the style she proposes, by using a two-phase Dripping: A fluid one that gives expressiveness and movement to the line, in the manner of the abstract expressionists or informalists; as well as another controlled one, of a figurative nature, with which he draws the shapes and outlines of his compositions.

"Her works by her manage to captivate and attract the attention of the viewer, immersing them in the deep aspects of a mental and psychological universe, full of reflection and contemplation"

 

Maestro Edgar Estupiñán, Curator and Cultural Commentator

Diana Francia Artist Statement

 

"Painting ... is entering a parallel world created by me ...

In the depths of my thoughts I love, I live, I feel, I dream and I miss, only in my mind, I am the owner and architect of that parallel, ephemeral and disturbing world, which I intend to capture in the canvases so that the viewer perceives them in an accurate way. 

I want to capture, among other topics, the emotions and the states of the womans soul reflected in looks, faces, and bodies, some taken from me, others coming from my imagination or from my surroundings, and in them their different moods, sensations, feelings, doubts, and frustrations; in an expressionist figurative style with textures, paint drips and vibrant colors which allow me to give him the strength, spontaneity, and fluidity that this theme requires. This as a tribute and to document in some way the current situation of women showing through my works everything that goes beyond a naked body, as is the essence, value, sensuality, and eroticism. I wish to exhort women to love themselves regardless of religion, physicality, age or social status, to see ourselves with other eyes, that beyond the skin there is a soul that lives, dreams, longs, and feels.

 

My series "Body and Naked Soul", "My Parallel World", "Question of Faith", "Animals ... Beings of Light" and "Migrations ... from the Real to the Unreal"; they are portals of that parallel world, which allow me to bring what is in my mind to reality.

Description of Diana Francia Artwork

 

My favorite subjects are religious, portrait, figure, landscapes, animals and abstract.

 

They are paintings that represent my world and my circumstances, inner or outer experiences, feelings, places, life situations that remain in my mind, beings and moments that want to capture in my memory, thoughts that they want to transmit to others. All this reflected through the techniques of artistic painting; In a figurative expressionist style, with colors and textures that express my emotions and states of the soul, To make them I usually use canvases, although some are painted on wood. I work with oil and / or acrylic paint or mixed media technique, I use any medium that allows me to highlight my paintings; Using as a technique the spatula and/or controlled dripping of paint on the support used (Art Dripping)

 

Through my paintings, I want to achieve more and more inner freedom and creativity, letting myself carry out the imagination or the feeling of the moment. Taking what is in my mind, incorporating it spontaneously on the canvas so that the viewer perceives it correctly.
