Art


The countenance is the portrait of the soul, and the eyes mark its intentions.


~Marcus Tullius Cicero



Diane Cirafesi graduated from West Chester University with a B.A. in Humanities/Fine Arts. She also studied under the notable Chadds Ford artist, Rea Redifer.

Ms. Cirafesi’s work has traditionally focused on the human form, through drawing, painting, and mixed media, including surprising juxtapositions of collage and found objects.

Her pieces include imagery derived from socio-religious influences and cultural and spiritual iconography Italy and Russia, and from travels to Taos, New Mexico, and Europe.

She defines her process as working and reworking an image, leaving artifacts of the struggle of the toolmark and of the image, creating a contemporary statement and form.

In addition to showing regionally for over 30 years, Ms. Cirafesi is a co-founder of The Art Trust in West Chester, a non-profit, volunteer-based organization, which supports and cultivates the exploration of a contemporary aesthetic for the benefit of artists and the community.
