SKINIPLAY x AMY DIENER
Hi, I'm Amy Diener and I'm a lover of art, color, and travel!
Creating art is my way of expressing my life journey. Painting is a positive outlet that reflects my life and the world around me. I create detailed dot paintings of mandalas, animals, trees, flowers, portraits, and figures.
I paint dots because I find the painting practice to be extremely meditative, bringing me to a state of "liminality" - a pause or space in between. It is this space where thoughts become silenced, and I become aware of the present moment. The process requires a lot of focus and repetition, embodying a steady hand and steady mind.
Having a long history of battling OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), painting dots has served as a form of art therapy for me. It has helped me alleviate my suffering in unimaginable ways. This is why I love the work of Yayoi Kusama - she used her signature polka dot paintings as a coping mechanism for her hallucinations.
