Ep 90 – Dianne Gall : One Painting for Life

I had a lovely conversation with artist Dianne Gall in Australia. Dianne has been painting for the last 30 years. Her paintings are like film stills from a movie you’ve never seen but you’d like to. They are lush, textural, and are populated by women with something on their minds.
Dianne’s paintings are collected internationally and her work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows around the world.

We talk about, pliers, wallpaper, pink hair, and of course art, lots of art and painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

  • Photography,
  • Choice of painting style,
  • Origin of painting ideas,
  • Finding models,
  • Gathering props,
  • Colour palette,
  • Favorite tools,
  • Vladimir Tretchikoff,
  • Stylistic transitions,
  • Underlying themes,
  • Edward Hopper comparisons,
  • Mad Men,
  • Film making,
  • Parallel career,
  • Being a gallery director,
  • Social media,
  • Working with galleries,
  • Art market in Australia,
  • Going international,
  • Strategy,
  • Selling prints,
  • Marketing,
  • Teaching,
  • Continuity of theme,
  • Big art dreams,
  • Openings,
  • Artistic challenges,
