About Diana

Diana Meredith is an independent artist, writer and critical thinker. She has worked in feminist theatre, sculpture and digital media. The body is at the centre of her practice. Cancer, body image, sexuality and age are some of her research topics. She combines analogue and digital processes and prints onto a variety of substrates – aluminum, diChair2pellon, paper and canvas. As a person living with cancer, she is interested in challenging the dominant medical and pharmaceutical narratives of that experience. Her work is
informed by second wave feminist ideas about embodiment and medical humanities.  In 2013 she received an MFA from OCADU for her thesis exhibition, Age is Written on the Body, an investigation of the experience of middle age. Until her 2015 diagnosis of multiple myeloma, bone marrow cancer, Meredith taught digital art in the Visual and Digital Art program at Humber College in Toronto. In 2016 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now she is learning how to live with chronic illness and its intersections with an aging body.
