Alejandro Diaz: Paintings

David Shelton Gallery

November 17 - December 23, 2017

Alejandro Diaz, originally from San Antonio but now a longtime resident of New York, has been known for his consummately clever art that was large, high production value, and often made by others. But in a statement for these new works, he explains that after his last show, he fell into a deep depression and returned to the craft of making small paintings in an effort to pull himself out of it. These works, widely different in style, were made by Diaz over the course of two years in his New York apartment, where he says he was able to recapture the "sheer joy of the act of painting."
