Lillian Vanous Nutt Room

one Moment: Works by David Diaz

April 8 – May 17, 2015


"I try to capture moments in time-places that may or may not be noticed as we pass them every day-giving them a certain nobility, having been seen and recorded by someone.

You may drive down the same road past the same buildings, fields, and trees with merely a glance around, looking but not really taking it in. But on one day, or one corner, the light hits the scene differently and the area is transformed. It becomes something else. It glows and begs to be looked at, studied, and if time and opportunity allow, painted.And because you know it is illusive, you must capture it immediately. It can fade, become obscured, or simply move on to leave you wondering what you found so compelling.You can try to anticipate and return another day prepared and be pleasantly surprised again, but sometimes the moment is simply gone."

–David Diaz
