Diena Georgetti explores the role and effect of paintings in the everyday world. Following her interest in modernism and the legacy of design, Georgetti’s modestly-scaled abstracts evoke a range of inspirations. Recalling architectural visions, theatre sets and schematic models, and ranging from surreal to non-objective compositions, Georgetti paintings are a homage to twentieth century culture and an aid to understanding life.
