Dianne Koppisch Hricko is a printmaker and painter currently working with dyes on fabrics and paper. She employs deconstructed silk screening, direct painting, discharge and shibori to produce both yardage and images. She exploits the layered transparency possible in this medium building rich and ambiguous surface. Color has always been a driving force in her work. Dianne maintains a studio in the Crane Arts building, lives in Philadelphia with the printmaker Richard Hricko and teaches at the University of the Arts. She is delighted to being putting her thirty-five plus years of teaching art in the public schools into her own work.
