Time on the Bowery: 1971 - 1974;

David Diao (b.1943) is an abstract modernist who first attracted attention with his show at Paula Cooper Gallery in 1969. From his play with reductionist iconography to his wry commentary on the historical legacy of art stars such as Ad Reinhardt and Jackson Pollock to his silkscreen series, Diao's works exhibit his painstaking attention to art theory and painterly detail.
