Diane Beatty-Wearing brings a visceral perspective in her "Ambitious” Hamilton series.
“Starting small and working to large, symbolic of the end result of ambition in any chosen direction. Hamilton has moved away from the reputation of manufacturing steel small c culture, into the culture driven multi media of arts production. Quite a large group now entertains this idea. It is the thought that counts. We are working towards a tipping point.”
DBW explores Hamilton with an eye towards the aesthetic. The architecture, abundance of trees and green space, breathtaking scenery, community-gathering places. There is a lot to draw from.
As of 2013, DBW has left the mainstream workforce to freelance as an artist and art educator. High ambitions, fraught with challenge and bursting creativity. Opening up the right-brain and following the feeling, DBW makes it up as she goes.
“We are what we keep telling ourselves. I AM Hamiltonian; I AM an Artist; I AM. And now, to paint.”
