This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted January 2005, is from the artist.

Sean Diediker is an artist and painter who believes that in today's hyper-realistic world a painting should look like a painting. Many of his works pay homage to biblical concepts, which, he states, "To me they seem to represent timeless
ideas and situations. I have made an attempt to take these biblical concepts and
through contemporary subject-matter bring these ideas closer to the viewer. So the
viewer may come to an understanding that these ideas and situations are still valid
and happening today."

He enjoys suggesting 21st century icons with his subject-matter. Most of his figures can be found wearing old blue jeans and t-shirts. "To me they are just as beautiful as the tapestries draping the figures of 17th century paintings", Diediker explains. Coke bottles, salt shakers, television sets, and even highway roads cutting through his landscapes emphasize his belief that common subjects can be beautiful if painted correctly. People have always been a great interest in his life. He enjoys
observing the stimulus and reaction of different human situations. Personal relationships have greatly influenced his work, from inspirations to the very models depicted in his paintings.

Although Diediker enjoys painting certain subject-matter, he savors even
more the act of painting itself. He explains, "I enjoy rolling in the whole creative
process, taking an idea and constructing a painting around it". This may stem from
working with his father who is a general contractor. He further explains, "I feel I
paint much in the same way that my father would erect a building; much thought in
planning, careful design, step by step and layer upon layer...until the work is done
and standing on its own."

Diediker is naturally a tight painter, but has discovered inspiration in a looser
brush stroke. "I find it much more difficult to render a painting with a
successful loose stroke than with a controlled tight stroke. Although there is some
satisfaction in a 'picture-perfect' rendering, my eye is much more stimulated by a
vast array of marks that suggest an image, but are still paint."

Sean grew up in Newbury Park California, the oldest of four brothers. He
currently resides with his wife in the Rocky Mountains of Utah where he paints full-
time.
