Diane Rosenblum - Bio


Rosenblum makes conceptual artworks in the visual language of modern and contemporary artists such as Joseph Kosuth, Richard Misrach, and Damien Hirst. Using auction sales results from the late 1980’s through 2009 obtained from artprice.com, she graphs art market data directly into her canvases. The data is legibly presented in line with Edward Tufte’s theories on the graphical display of information. This project is neither parody nor appropria­tion. Instead, the art and career of the artist in question is the subject matter of Rosenblum’s artwork.
