About Eye Talk
Diehr states, “Visual storytelling is what I do with my art. I use clay, wood, and alabaster stone to create my sculptures. Literature, philosophy, the natural world and human behavior are the basis for the meaning and content in these ‘stories.’” “Communication on various levels is important to me in my work. The process of sculpting with mixed media and visual problem-solving, due to the different physical qualities of each medium, is also important to my aesthetic. My goal is to have a conversation with the viewer.”
