“Look at the lips of the paintings of Diana Avgusta Stauer. Not the eyes, but the lips. They are the true mirrors of the souls of their protagonists. Suspended as if willing to reveal an unspeakable secret, like those of Nefertiti, open to pronounce a condemnation or shout for their own salvation, as the priestess of the Druids, parted in an enigmatic smile, like those of Margaret, a happy conquest of which their victim is still unaware. These lips seal or open up a world to discover forever. Devouring, or leaving property in our contemplation.”

“Dear Diana, I just visited your exhibition. Congratulations to your subjects that combine iconography of Egyptian civilization as in the portraits of the Queen Nefertiti revisited with some research of realism typical of the West, resulting into hybrids that well define the fragile elegance of the feminine nature. Aware of the fact that perfection is a slow but a continuous process, I wish to refine it with dedication and grace that you certainly do not miss.

Best regards.”
