Diamond Portraits

"Having worked with diamonds my entire life, I can easily say that diamonds have personality, just like we humans have. This idea intrigues me and one reason why in my paintings diamonds are not specimens, they have story and soul. In the Diamond Portrait Series, I explore what makes a diamond a diamond. Through diamond portraitures, I hope to tease out the personality, the deep insight and essence that these diamonds carry within and even express my emotions towards them. For me it's more than an insatiable need to record, it's like having an intimate conversation. As you look at these portraits, I am certain you will find your own conversation with them." -- Reena Ahluwalia

Diamond Portals

"Diamonds and emotions go together. I am intrigued by the ability of a diamond to hold you captivated - through its fire, brilliance, reflections, colour and its association as a holder of value, prestige, power and mystique. The eternal depth of diamonds are like portals, gateways to other dimensions. In the Diamond Portal Series. You are invited to enter portals where subtle references exist but the story is completed based on your life experiences and desires. I hope that each time you see the work, a new set of questions, solutions and possibilities emerge. The qualities of diamond act as metaphors and hold the stories together."-- Reena Ahluwalia
