Dianne Twombly

Dianne Twombly is a Hamilton-based visual artist who digitally deconstructs abandoned or declining architecture and reimagines the artifacts in more spacious, dream-inspired landscapes that speak of the human connection to lost places. These neglected places—once vibrant and inhabited sites of human activity—now exist in spectacular worlds, balancing precariously but still grounded…if only on the edge of reality.

Twombly’s work addresses themes of decay, transformation, the passage of time, and cycles of life, death and rebirth in both natural and constructed environments. These new forms of architecture create space for personal reminiscence and for contemplation on the ways in which time alters our relationship with both past places and our own past selves.

Through these pieces Twombly invites the viewer to look more closely at the many layers of the human spaces we now occupy and those we can only remember or dream of, and to see within them a world of new possibilities.

Twombly holds degrees from the University of Toronto, as well as a certificate in Dynamic Media from the Center for Electronic Art in San Francisco. She is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at York University in Toronto. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections across Canada.
