A disco-drone melts through shimmering lights and soft splashing of a synthetic waterfall. `*crystal, rest offers an endless loop of a holographic landscape as a point of meditation and self-reflection.
Diana Lynn VanderMeulen is a Toronto-based multimedia artist, who received her BFA from York University in 2012. Her practice is fluid between collage, painting, sculptural installation and digital media. Past and present works investigate mysterious elements of our natural world through the selective vision of magic realism. Landscape is considered through the scope of German Idealism, which challenges the subject as representing an inner state of mind. Holographic and shimmering materials are used to transform an unlikely space into one of effeminate luxury, evoking hallucinatory sensation suggestive of a mirage in an unfamiliar landscape.
