A recipient of a South Dakota Arts Council grant, Diana Behl holds an MFA from The University of Iowa, and a BFA from Bowling Green State University. Her current body of work often assumes characteristics of a diary or logbook, referencing both memory and narrative. Personal iconography alludes to metaphor and humor, while the physical accumulation of collaged material and amassment of drawn marks suggest reflection on these themes.
Her works on paper have been featured in the Western Edition of New American Paintings (Volume 66) as well as the 2004 New American Paintings MFA Annual. She has exhibited works at SPACE (Pittsburgh, PA), the Soo Visual Arts Center (Minneapolis, MN), the Plains Art Museum (Fargo, ND) and the International Print Center New York (NY, NY). Her mixed media images are also featured in The Drawing Center's online Artist Registry and Viewing Program.
