Diane Deery (b. 1971), is an environmental fiber artist, living in Philadelphia, PA. She is an innovator with fibers and natural elements; it allows her the freedom to explore and play. Water is her vehicle to explore the relationship between colorful dyes and material. She is fascinated by the subject of water itself; her desire to explore these elements is a central part of her work.
In this installation at Old City Publishing, Deery draws inspiration from nature’s elements. Her kinetic mobile, made of hand-dyed silk and wire, moves gracefully as if whispering to one another. The movement seems so effortless. The gentle air caresses each shape creating an impermanence to this work.
Deery received her Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (2018) and her BFA and Art Educations from Moore College of Art and Design (1993, 2008). Currently, the Chair of the Art Department at The Hill School, a private boarding school, she teaches Design Thinking, Digital Photography, Fibers, and Woodworking.
