Born in Romania and raised in Texas, Diana Antohe’s practice is centered in the reach towards the country of her original citizenship, and the familial relationships that have always defined her understanding of Romania. Through painting, drawing, and sewing, Antohe creates work with cues from the systems of value and care she has inherited from the examples of her parents and grandparents.
Antohe received an MFA in Painting + Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University and a BFA in Studio Art from Southern Methodist University, with additional studies at the Slade School of Art and Yale’s Auvillar Program. She has held residencies at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, Can Serrat Center in El Bruc, Spain, Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT, Mildred’s Lane in Beach Lake, PA, and the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, VA. Her work has been exhibited locally and internationally including Page Bond Gallery, Elizabeth Foundation of the Arts, True F. Luck Gallery, and Camden Arts Centre.
