A Painter with Zing

Dianna Molzan, Untitled, 2009

On a recent trip to New York I came across the work of Dianna Molzan at the Whitney Museum. These works interested me a lot as she deals with the idea of painting as a contained space. In my opinion there are very few painters who can cut or tear a canvas and get away with it. Merlin James has achieved this in the past but there aren’t many more. Dianna Molzan achieves this and more. Every piece in the show was confident and spoke about the very nature of what a painting is and can be. More images from Overduin and Kite here  and from Whitney here.
