Diana Lynn Thompson is an installation artist who works with ephemeral moments, accumulated objects, collected stories and insertion/intervention strategies, which she documents in video and photographs.
She took her BFA at the University of Victoria.
Her works have been exhibited, performed and installed
nationally and internationally.
In the 1980’s Diana worked as a park naturalist and botanical illustrator. This background in- and deep love for - biology influences her work, which integrates scientific methodology with a poetic sense of wonder.
She has been known to count every leaf on five trees, patiently collect and pin thousands of pine needles onto
a gallery wall, and distribute 25,000 shaped pieces of shell to people around the world. She has hand-made and numberedthousands of ceramic stones which she then permanently placed on an eroding beach, and stitched and hung over 8000 brilliant autumn leaves at the SOFA Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana. Currently
she is painting and stringing millions of wooden beads for her ongoing project on cyanobacteria.
