About Diana Horowitz

Painting urban landscapes in the plein air tradition, Diana Horowitz captures the industrial sites along New York’s commercial waterways with meticulous attention to the varying architecture of city streets and rooftops. Horowitz compresses significant detail into her canvases, kept small so as to be portable. She aims to simplify structures through gentle gestures and prefers to omit extreme detail in favor of capturing the geometric rhythm of the scene. Horowitz cites Hans Hofmann, Richard Diebenkorn, and Charles Sheeler among her influences.
