KEY CAST: Diana Al-Hadid
OVERVIEW: How do you get a painting to stand up on its own? At her Bushwick, Brooklyn studio and the OHWOW Gallery in Los Angeles, artist Diana Al-Hadid creates a singularly hybrid artwork, transforming brushstrokes on a wall into architectural sculpture. “I love storytelling, I love stories, and I love novels and characters. But there’s a part of me that resists that kind of specificity. I like to hold back and be more ambiguous,” says Al-Hadid.
