The plasticity of Diana Sprenger's works is born in the depth of the space which is not only 'space' but also produces - intrinsically - 'space' that does not offer us any of those spacially-oriented reference points we are familiar with. This kind of 'depth' is not deceptive since our vision - familiar with seeing in three dimensions and seeking common sights - comes upon the depth of a kind of space that can only be filled by individual and original seeing.
If you have become acquainted with Diana Sprenger's works, you observe that a broad range of colours is reflected. They change their nature depending on the way light falls. If observers change their perspectives, the shades of colours change entirely.
Our seeing resembles a journey in the course of which it captures all impressions which grow stronger to become an experience that we associate permanently with the image; by means of which we also recognise it and - which is probably one of the mysteries of art - we, ourselves, constitute something entirely new.
