Diane Rogan’s painting reflects the hidden space in municipal places which she calls ‘Wild Space.’ Wild Space is a philosophical title, embedding ideas between the broad relationships between urban areas, community and - by extension - the concept of belonging.  Social politics and psychological states are played out through the language of architecture; broken lines and fragmented buildings hold performative symbolism.

These paintings have a connection with familiar surroundings, the trees and buildings provoke memory and recognition. The bright, unnatural palette, however, flicks the switch between the real and the fantasy -  exciting a realm of the unknown. Lurid colours, fragmentation and exaggerated contrasts are unnerving, but the fluid brushstrokes and attention to detail produce new, consoling and inspiring realities. The paintings, therefore, offer a contradiction to symbolise the various connections and possibilities between people and place.
