Biography from Hackett-Freedman Gallery:
Guy Diehl is a contemporary still life painter whose work examines the history of art and the artists who have shaped it. Diehl’s use of chiaroscuro, foreshortening, and naturalism are in the tradition of the 17th-century Spanish painters, Francisco de Zurbarán and Juan Sánchez Cotán, whom Diehl cites as significant influences.

Diehl’s work presents a dialogue with the cultural past by asking viewers to consider the meaning suggested by the natural and manmade objects and iconic art images assembled in his paintings. This analysis of social and artistic iconography relates to the work of pop art artist Mel Ramos, and the San Francisco-based photo-realist painter Robert Bechtle, with whom Diehl studied in the seventies.

A longtime resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, Diehl first began working in the still life tradition while an undergraduate at California State University, Hayward, in the early seventies. Diehl received his BA from California State University, Hayward in 1973, and his MA from San Francisco State University in 1976. Diehl's work is held in the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Oakland Museum of California, among others.
