Diane Victor deals with the taboos of South African society, social and political life tainted with violence, corruption and social disparities. Exploring her anger, though images in various media such as ash, candle smoke or print, she represents the fragility and vulnerability of life, thereby attempting to raise awareness, combining aesthetic elements with uneasy content.
She is a frequent visitor to the studio at Atelier le Grand Village. Her interest in print making has led her to push the boundaries of stone lithography especially with the manière noire technique. She is now one of South Africa’s most widely known artists with her work in many private and public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York and the Bibliothèque Nationale, France. Her contribution to printmaking in South Africa is immense where she teaches drawing and printmaking at several arts schools.
