FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


BLUE RAIN GALLERY PRESENTS A ONE-MAN SHOW BY ACCLAIMED PAINTER SEAN DIEDIKER


SANTA FE, N.M. [March 29, 2006] – Blue Rain Gallery presents a one-man show of paintings by Sean Diediker from May 5, 2006 through May 31, 2006 at the gallery’s location on 130 Lincoln Avenue in Santa Fe. An artist reception will be held on Friday, May 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the gallery.

Diediker has been called a “painter’s painter” for his expressive canvases that relate biblical allegories in a contemporary manner. Diediker draws the viewer into his original portrait, landscape, and still life paintings by combining strong composition, bold colors, and symbols of modern life.

Diediker is based in Utah but recently completed a yearlong trip around the world where he set up studios in Australia, Switzerland, and Italy. The changes of venue inspired him, but his interest in the human condition and his ability to render the ordinary extraordinary remains the same.
