John Diehl
Triton, 2022, Abstract Painting

2022

About the Item

Artist Comments
In this large composition, artist John Diehl crafts a monolithic piece using the Pythagorean theorem and advanced light-absorbing paint. While its elegance is apparent from a distance, a closer inspection reveals subtle pencil lines and intimate traces of the human touch. "These are my marks as a human being entering the posthuman era," says John. The equilateral triangle commands the pristine white background—making a bold statement about the persisting significance of human agency and creativity in a world of technological innovations.


About the Artist
John Diehl was trained as a classical pianist before ever picking up a brush or palette knife. That love of music permeates his art. John uses landscapes as a means to express feeling rather than capture a scene. Among other emotions, he portrays "joy, peace, happiness, and solitude." John estimates there are 15,000 brushstrokes in each of his paintings. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Florence in Italy, and currently lives in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
