About

A.I.R. Gallery is delighted to present Diamonds, an exhibition of photonic dreams and new paintings by New York artist Joan Snitzer, who looks back at 20th-century abstraction to explore abstract functions in a contemporary context. Diamonds stages a measured and unpredictable allegory in hypnotic color and form events. Each painting is executed by hand-pouring pigment into pools of aqueous solvents, demonstrating the tendency of different color pigments to move at different speeds even in the viscous medium of paint. Mounting a fluid mood in washes of richly saturated color, the paintings present a full, continuous surface reminiscent of an expanse of land, the sea, and beyond. The organic accumulation of marks and material creates a comforting and seemingly infinite space. In their delicate and adamant retreat from a traditional sense of mastery, choosing instead to seeking beauty in chance, Snitzer's romantic works resist a Western tradition that typically favors masculine authority.
