She has appeared in 25 solo exhibitions.

Sara Diciero’s artwork has a creative originality. Since 1999, Diciero has been experimenting with the idea of lighting the artwork from behind. She uses oil paint on resin sheets to create the support of her "luminous" boxes or backlights, which she then exhibits in groups as installations.

Diciero was chosen in 2005 from Chihuahua-Mexico by the writer, Reyna Armendáriz González, to put drawings in the poetry book "Estuario: remotas estancias".

Light, joy, optimism, hope, to dream, colors and music are my guide, my way, your way, the one that if you want, we together can share... visiting my works!
I use backlights like support , whose fronts are resin laminaes that I paint with the oil on these. So artwork is illuminated from back. And I altogether present/display these artworks like instalations.
I am investigating and developing this method from 2000. At the same time I paint on support conventional like canvas, wood, paper, chapadur, acrylic laminae, etc...
My painting is within the Abstract Expresionismo and it can be classified towards the Nature, like birds, Fecundity, and the Earth observation to infinite distances.
I dedicate myself to register on any support the caught thing from a so distant point to the Earth as the sight from an airplane in flight to 10,000 meters of height, so to the sight as what we found habitually on the Earth, as so near as things can be observed in a microscope. This way, we can see in his paintings, as much microorganisms, cells, as plowed mountains, fields, extensive woods, volcanos in activity, distant fires of forests, little poblations; and coasts, rivers with clouds also interrupting vision. And of course terrestrial landscapes of fantasy.

Sara Diciero
Nature-Inspired Sensuality From Buenos Aires

Even a brief glance at a Sara Diciero paintings stirs the spirit. Her works are inspired by natural beauty, her images echoing the forms of geological wonders, coral reefs, seashells, even volcanos. Like Georgia O'Keeffe, Sara transforms these images into expressions of human emotions: sensuality, sexuality, spirituality. Frequently, Sara reaches a sublime level of abstraction, wherein the image contains a faint hint of a temporal form -- enough to remind us that our humanity can be reflected in the natural world, but also to insist that our soul transcends the physical realm

Sara's style is distinctive. Her forms are painted with bright, lush colors colors, accented by tiny streaks of white paint that burrow like sapling roots through and around the main forms to lend a visual texture of remarkable insight and complexity. Her compositions are improbable and even paradoxical, as the flat surface of the abstraction has nonetheless imbued with perceptive depth -- consider, for example, the swirling vortex of Entre El Cielo y La Tierra or the geological topography of Por Les Canales De Tu Amor. Sara's work has been exhibited throughout Argentina, and Eighth Elephant is pleased to introduce it to the United States.

Working with other materials allowed Sara Diciero to reach the light that
praises her work, enlightening a space that puts together the artificial as
the potential of reality in her work, which is the color itself.
Sara denies all illusions: the emotion of her piece is the color and the
memory of art history. She rests on that memory, questioning the illusion
and creating a new reality. The main features in the picture are displayed
in an organic expressionism and the spectator is able to see trough the
essential components of her wise language.

Sara Diciero´s work is open to new searches, all of them loaded with energy which are shown in the shape, texture and colour.
From her previous work of intimacy and atmosphere to the new ones of construction and counterpoint, we find similarities like the painting quality and differences as the construction and the idea.

Travesías lumínicas- July 2002

Travesías lumínicas- July 2002



"Diciero, works with shape, color and light, integrating the whole with a broad form of communication that reaches and touches the viewer...she takes risks in a difficult but fertile terrain and unfolds, in front of our eyes, her findings. In Diciero's works also plays, and magically, a light of subtle religious significance.

The color, the shapes, and spots organize themselves and dance at the beam of light that seems to arrange and give rhythm to the silence and the death, drawing them away with its invocation to the light, the third dynamic element of her work. And a new cosmos reemerges and involves us with its charm and evocation..and also proves, that in the middle of despair, our artists still, continue dreaming....

Sara Diciero fulfills the impressionist dream of working color as light. In her backligths, the artist filters the iridescence of the neons through a layer of resin where her colored configuration are installed. Using the classic oil paint, the tones not only glow as a consequence of logical luminous reflection of color, but also and certainly strenghtened by the action of real light as color-light.

This resource, which now seems to be in vogue even between the most orthodox painters, is present in Diciero's work in an original manner and with personal characteristics. The use of real light in contemporary art, from the luminous structures of Dan Flavin to the electronic signs of Jenny Holzer, is trying hard to trespass the traditional supports accompanying the ins and out of the "isms" and trends..

In this international explosion of supports and visual techniques where everything seems to be accepted, few artists have searched to improve the traditional disciplines: painting, sculpture, drawing and engraving, with new resources from high tech in the current belief of thinking that this fusion could end up being "not innovative", the trend is to combine everything, sometimes without the least cohesion, transforming these experiences more in a melange than in a mix. Now, yes, with the most sophisticated technical resources. The system of luminous boxes, than in Diciero's case may be we should call painting with light, help me to make these works shine with their own light.

Travesía por lo fecundo- 1999


Her work has suffered an interesting change. The structures that appear in the floating surfaces follow a line that exiles a geometric will. This organization evidence itself as a living thing that breath. This allows us to say that art is a way of investigation. The canvas can reflect a look from another states of the conscience, extracting from them new formal expressive realities.

An explotion of harmoniously combined colors characterize her works, whether they be figurative or abstract, since she handles both styles naturally and with a strong plastic sense. Her artistic output, her dedication and the deeply romantic fervor of the contents of her work, identify her as an artist with a promising future trajectory in the field of the fine arts.

“Surrealism and abstraction, the core of a new poetry”- June 1997

 “Surrealism and abstraction, the core of a new poetry”- June 1997


...There is the problem, well solved by her and turned into a very substantial art, the crucial problem for every painter, that one of light. Without appealing to subterfuges or tricks like “trompe-lóeil”, without establishing luminous sources, Sara Diciero performs an incredible miracle that is not only optical: from the surfaces of her work, perfectly composed, an intrinsic luminosity springs, even and seamless, as if it was a mysterious concealed blood, that brings life to everything and livens it up. Or to put it differently, it’s as if every painting... saw itself reinforced in its own system of luminous circulation, that springs from the deepest and brightens everything up...

“Color is a synonym of life”- 1996/7

“Color is a synonym of life”- 1996/7


Sara Diciero is a painter who, from her work, attracts essentially with her color virtuosity. Based on a feeling of her own - strictly romantic- from her plastic imagery she translates the chromatic flows demanded by her own nature. With existential joy, she kind of intends to obstruct all that is negative nowadays.... Sara paints colors, and in those colors she paints optimism, redemption… flights in colors….


Her pictures, of highly chromatic transparencies, always oscillate with very qualified atmospheres of light, plenty of brightness.
The comprehensive light strengthens the arguments that Sara offers us, where everything is hinted: sensuality, love, the pleasure of light…. Genuine chromatic unity.


Luckily, her visual unity is obsessive.
That is why her luminosity in oranges, yellows, in the suggestive greens....

Misterios de la tierra- September- 2004

Misterios de la tierra- September- 2004


The new works of Sara Diciero reach visual fullness.
It proposes an exuberante image that continuously changes its possibilities of reading.
The glance is catched by a surface very stimulated that to find different express slopes allows in each route

Far from being a figurative painter, its image fills with fantastic valleys, vertiginous torrents that slide like liquids, mountainous dunes in trip or cords, microscopic organisms exposed under an increase lens, infinite variants in the forms and in the colors that only the own imagination can give sense.

This aptitude to catch and to stop on any support a set of images with hipnagogique or dream capacity, obtains thanks to her incursion in different pictorial techniques, specially oil and the use of aplications of own design.

Although it seems a paradox, the variety in the image borns of the permanence in the color treatment..

Diciero operates at the same time by succession of equivalent tones in several works. This continuity generates sequences in the work that come together in a great wealth of images, become related in its difference.

The works follow one to another by the pitch combinations that generate different composed .structures.
It’s only the light that takes part with total protagonism, being diluted or concentrating itself with varied intensity. Or in range of brown, or by green, ocher (dark yellow) or blue intonations, the pictorial field is opened to a full variety where of nature’s fundamental elements make their appearance there..

Sara Diciero paints with the same intensity that lives. She takes to the painting the overflowed characteristics of his personality, spontanety and passion by the life.
