Wired X Rated at UMA Gallery

February 11 @ 12:00 pm - March 18 @ 5:00 pm

UMA Gallery presents an exhibition by wire artist Diane Komater on view from February 11 through March 18, 2023.

Diane Komater is a nationally acclaimed master wire artist. Think Calder. Much like Calder, Komater’s work is infused with humor and executed with the utmost skill. Influenced by the likes of Fritz the Kat, Crumb, the music of James Brown and the black caming lines in stained glass church windows. Komater creations of the human form are spellbinding.

As with all of Komater’s work, one is immediately captivated by following the “lines” drawn with wire. The eye searches for the beginning and the end points until the shadows are discovered. For a moment, the mind is tickled. Both the object and the shadow are seen together. Another jewel is when the otherwise unseen signature is revealed in the shadow. This effect is brilliant and allows one to fall deeper into her sensual spell.
