Diana González Gandolfi

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Diana González Gandolfi traveled widely while growing up, living in Colombia and Indonesia before settling with her family in New York City (NYC) in 1965. Her abstract paintings and prints are heavily influenced by these early experiences and focus on themes such as place, identity and memory.

Over the course of her career, González Gandolfi has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants from a variety of institutions. These include Traveling Fellowships in 1975 & 1984 from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Distinguished Artist Award and Fellowship for Printmaking in 1986 as well as Painting Fellowships in 1991 & 1994 from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts; New Jersey Artist Print and Paper Fellowship from the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers University in 2001; Painting Fellowship in 2002 from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation as well as a Residency Grant from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation to attend the Vermont Studio Center that same year. In 2012 she was selected to participate in a collaborative Editions Project: Four Artists & Four Master Printers, a grant project awarded to the Printmaking Center of NJ by the New Jersey State Council in the Arts.
