Diane Barcelowsky returns to Sloan Fine Art, NY.

Diane Barcelowsky is an artist that raises my endorphin levels. Running one's eyes over her seriously psychedelic, slightly psychotic paintings produces the best kind of contact high. Brilliant colors, fascinating patterns, and tiny scenes of often hilarious goings-on combine to produce a heady state of blissful overstimulation. Where does she get this stuff? Who cares. Her inventive paintings are visually abundant and narratively slippery.
Sloan Fine Art in New York's lower east side just opened a stunning show of Diane's mixed media paintings. A former student of mine, the talented Edwin Ushiro creates a different kind of lush magic, with his light filled mixed media pieces in the gallery's project room. The show's dates are March 24 to April 17, 2010.
