ASU West Fletcher Library Second Floor Showing
Local artists join passions on walls of
West Fletcher Library at ASU West for the Holidays
Fresh from her successful Scottsdale showing of her bold up close and touchable art,
Diane Greco-Lesser has filled the library's second floor walls with thirty-five pieces of her unique artwork. As you approach each photo it appears as a hand painted acrylic on canvas, every brush stroke emphasizing the details and characteristics of her subject.
Diane Greco-Lesser remarks “I really enjoy watching people walk up to my artwork and being fascinated in whether they are looking at a photo or a painting. Art is supposed to make you think and that is the beauty in it. I take great pleasure in observing this beautiful world we live in and I try not to miss a moment. So many of us are so busy running around they don’t stop. Well I stop and capture it. My motto is “Missing the Moment is not an Option”.
There are significant moments in life that deserve to be captured, and she is passionate about capturing those moments through photography.
Diane Greco-Lesser is an original New Yorker, born and raised an Italian girl from the city and Long Island. When she visited the southwest for the first time in 200, she decided only a few years later that she needed to move from New York to a slower pace community where she can concentrate on my talents.
She considers herself a woman of many talents but photography and art have taken the forefront of the passions. “God has brought me to this place at this time so that I can enjoy the journey one moment at a time”.
What started out as "take the photo and save it for later" has become the now moment. She takes pride saying that she do not alter the original photo except to crop and focus. Each piece of artwork is an original photo taken by her, printed on canvas, gallery wrapped and signed, using clear molding gel for brush stroke and depth enhancements, making it touchable art.”
Art, like music, creates a mood. “I appreciate the beauty in life, the magic and emotion in nature and still life, in capturing a certain subject whether it is a set of old country style mail boxes, thorns on a southwest cactus, an orangutan with a baby, or a Zebra eye taken while playing pee a poo at the wildlife zoo in Litchfield Arizona.
Art inspires us to explore the beauty in life through the gifts and creative journey of the Artist. Art is a form of communication between the artist and her audience, revealing a story, detailing the experience with captured emotional moments'
