Artist. Author. Diana Nicosia delivers compelling work in dual mediums.
Diana Nicosia launched her newest series, CAPRI, in May 2017, a collection highlighted by large format oil on canvas entitled Blue Capri, 38 x 51 inches.
“Watching waves crashing against steep, rocky cliffs, I first glimpsed Capri from a hydrofoil. I was enchanted,” recalls Diana. “Capri is a rugged island that is beautiful, jutting proudly from the azure Tyrrhenian Sea. The flowers, white jasmine, the aromas from lemons and rosemary inspired my creativity. This golden island has a rich, lusty history and its share of myths -- being the island of the Sirens in Homer’s epic tale, The Odyssey. Capri’s most iconic natural feature is its three dramatic side-by-side rock formations, the Faraglioni, which thrust from the sea as natural sculptures. Anacapri, the other Capri, is set apart from the glamorous town of Capri and is more rural with a quieter charm. Villa San Michele, the famous castle of the Swedish born doctor Axel Munthe, is a popular tourist spot with splendid views. I spent a summer painting on the island and everywhere I looked I saw blue sky and the sparkling sea. It was la dolce vita time.”
