Art - Artists - Diana Nicholette Jeon
This is my work. I use beautiful colors to entice viewers to look at the less savory slices of contemporary American life. Most work addresses identity, social issues, politics, and most especially, the impact of tourism on the residents of Hawai‘i. I work with a variety of digital, tradigital, and traditional media, as I believe that every work has a "right form" that expresses it best. I often work with materials that add 'mana' (Hawaiian for 'power') to the intent of the work as well.

Curated by Christiane Paul, Director of Media Studies Graduate Programs, The New School, NYC and Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art. "What if..." panoramic image from 28 iPhone photos merged in-camera. Not 'just another pretty beach scene.' The time-consuming process of removing is as important as the final image; it speaks to how we rework our most precious land.
