Diana Beltran Herrera has studied design, experimental painting, and ceramic sculpture. She is originally from Colombia but moved to Finland, and then Bristol for her art studies. Her most recent series feature birds made out of carefully cut and arranged pieces of paper. Some of Diana’s subjects are caught in mid-flight while others are carefully posed on perches. According to one website, she ‘…seeks to explore the chillingly disengaged relationship between humans and nature in modern society. Using paper as her primary medium she is able to present notions of temporality and change, emphasizing the process of transformation that continuously occur in nature as well as mankind.’ Diana is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Fine Arts over at the University of West England.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
