Exhibition at NEXTDOOR 24/7 Art Venue

Home-In-The-Woods: Finding Dhyana in a Leftover Universe where Tender Time Sighs

NEXTDOOR 24/7 Art Venue is excited to announce Diana van der Harst as our featured artist for February 2021. 


In a realm of Magical Realism in a Leftover Universe, artist Diana van der Harst shares her experiences, thoughts and beings met along the way of this journey home; expressed in drawings, paintings, poetry, ceramics and textile art.Diana draws inspiration for her range of work from her own life experiences and from human, animal, plant, inanimate and invisible beings surrounding her. Her love of all of life in its richness and variety has blossomed into the body of work that continues to evolve. Her work is intuitive, contemplative, emotional, spiritual, whimsical, harmonious and poetic. 

“When nothing looked familiar; my surroundings, choices I made and the person staring back at me in the mirror, I started to ask myself the questions: “Who am I? What am I? Where am I?”. With those questions in my pocket I embarked on a creative and spiritual journey through a forest, this puzzling maze we call life. With little steps and big dreams I started walking. Walking my very own path to find my self, to find my way home”. NEXTDOOR’s featured artist space creates an opportunity for subscribers to showcase their practice with a focused or experimental series of works.

Diana’s exhibition will run from 30th January to 21st February 2021.

Please join us in celebrating its opening on:

Saturday 30th January, 6pm-8pm 

Hope to see you there.
