On the waterfront: Diana Horowitz at Hirschl & Adler

Diana Horowitz's second solo exhibition at Hirschl & Adler features close to twenty new paintings, ranging in size from 8 x 10 inches to 22 x 34 inches. Horowitz is known for her open-air urban panoramas of Brooklyn and Manhattan, but she's also presenting some purely abstract paintings. In the NY Sun, Maureen Mullarkey reports that there's "strength in Ms. Horowitz's lucidity and ability to convey a great deal of information in a contained space, and with a minimum of brushwork. 'Yellow Smoke Stacks' (2006) is a jewel of a thing, less than 6 inches square. Yet the chromatic range, the interplay of suggested and depicted detail, lends the piece a sweep and a solidity that many painters do not achieve on larger canvases." Read more.

"Diana Horowitz: Recent Paintings," Hirschl & Adler, New York, NY. Through March 15.
