The Moorpark College Art Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by artist L. Aviva Diamond.  Light Streams offers viewers the experience of a cosmos consisting of light and movement, a meditative, spiritual dimension of water. In this exhibition, artist L. Aviva Diamond uses digital techniques to intensify her images and blur photography and painting, water and sky.

This body of work grew from visits to an Oregon retreat where she meditated on rushing streams filled with the shifting bubbles formed from subterranean gases. Diamond has always been drawn to the reflections, ripples, and shimmering light cast on and within water, by the element's life-giving essence. But in these works she also explores water's mutable, ambiguous nature and its qualities of both creation and destruction, reverberating with stars, mystery, mystic creatures and otherworldly landscapes. The works are dimensional, exploring cosmic connections and the undulating layers beneath the surface.

L. Aviva Diamond received a BA in English and French from Wellesley College and an MS in Journalism from Columbia University.  Her work has been included in exhibits at the Griffin Museum of Photography, the Palm Springs Art Museum, Neutra Institute Gallery, The Center for Fine Art Photography, The Latino Art Museum and various Southern California galleries.  For more information visit her website,
