Every election cycle, I turn my talents to political satire, because I love humor and politics. In 2016 I created a year long collaborative effort with artists across the country, to celebrate free speech through artistic political satire. The project , called "DISHING IT OUT 2016" would also register new voters, and encourage artists to engage in this undeserved genre, while amusing the public. This work was created for that project. It is published in the art criticism journal AFTERIMAGE issue 44.4, along with a six page interview with myself about this project and my other art activist work. The sourced photograph is printed on photo canvas, and a found object, the crocheted medallion, is adhered to the surface, in an homage to John Baldessari, and also to "dis" Hillary, ever so slightly. hahaha! (I was a Bernie Supporter!). The project consisted of monthly exhibits and performances, and can be seen on the facebook page , "Dishing It Out -2016". The Huffington Posts website "If This Art Could Vote" featured 12 or more artworks from the project, by different artists, including about 4 of my collages.

Diane Olson-Bush was born in Buffalo, N.Y. At the age of 18, she emigrated to the U.K. with a draft dodger, in response to the Vietnam War. After living there for ten years and working as a documentary photographer, she returned to the U.S. to attend to her ailing parents. Once back in Buffalo, N.Y. she obtained her Master's Degree in Photography from the State University of New York at Buffaloi by documenting local boxing gyms and billiard halls. After graduating, she spent seven years as staff photographer at the local affiliate of the National Public Broadcasting and ABC-TV stations. At the same time she pursued self-imposed artistic projects and established a public arts organization. Diane returned to academia by spending six years as the Coordinator of the Photography Department at a local two-year college just outside of Buffalo. While her students were winning numerous national awards and prizes, Diane was doing the same with her own professional and artistic work, through the generosity of such entities as Kodak, Polaroid, Women in Photography, Nikon, Ilford, the Royal Photographic Society, Friends of Photography (San Francisco), The Albright -Knox Art Gallery, and the United Nations. Throughout her professional career, Diane has continued to exhibit her work in approximately 2-5 group shows per year, and has been both exhibited and published locally, nationally, and internationally, including shows in Japan, China, Great Britain, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Switzerland, and France. Since her relocation to Las Vegas in 1997, she has been awarded 16 grants and a Fellowship from the Nevada Arts Council. In 2009 she became a U.S.A. Fellowship nominee. Diane continues to teach occasional photographic workshop and donates her time to many local non-profit art organizations. Diane's satirical and fine art imagery sourced from T.V. screens spans over 30 years, and includes videos, talking pictures, performance work, and stills. Bush's published monograph, WARHEADS contains images that satirize America's news censorship of the Iraqi War. These were created by shooting TV surfaces with a macro lens at obtuse angles and throwing bleach on her C-prints. Currently, she is documenting Las vegas architecture and collaborating with other artists to highlight our just how fragile the health of our environment is. Diane is also the unofficial Yarnbombing queen of Las vegas.
