Mixed media artist
New York, NY
Diane Tuft received a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Connecticut. She has always been interested in medicine and scientific research, hoping one day to go to medical school or to do research in cellular biology. While raising her family, she pursued her artistic interests by taking classes at the International Center of Photography and Pratt Institute. Her interest in science and art led her to meld the two in her representation and vision of nature in her art.
For the past 15 years, Diane has exhibited her work in numerous museums including the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, New York. She has had several solo exhibits in New York galleries including Pace Wildenstein Gallery, The Ameringer, McEnery, Yohe Gallery, and The Hollis Taggart Gallery. Diane also exhibited and participated in a science/art symposium at The Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah. Diane is presently represented by The Marlborough Gallery in New York.
In August of 2009, she published her book “UNSEEN”, which was a retrospective of her photographs based on infrared and ultraviolet light.
She is presently in The International Center of Photography and the Whitney Museum of American Art collections as well as many private collections throughout the United States.
Diane is a board member of The International Center for Photography. She also serves on the Exhibition Committee of the International Center of Photography and the Drawing Committee of the Whitney Museum of Art. Diane has served as a trustee on The Cancer Research board since June 2010.
She currently resides in New York City with her husband, Tom Tuft.
