Cathy Diamond and Laurie Fader suggest peculiar storylines in their paintings. Hybrid forms with distinct characteristics inhabit mutant landscapes. Both artists draw heavily on the natural world and art history to conjure up their own imagina- tive terrain. They navigate the private enclaves of places like gardens and neighborhoods, placing domesticity in relation to the tumult of global geopolitical events. Observing works up close at Radiator Gallery, viewers might trace paths that begin in the minds of Diamond or Fader, rife with images of personal experiences and journeys, that open onto a larger chaotic world. The small and largescale paintings in Luscious Wasteland may be intimate or riotous in spirit and depict vistas that appear to unfold over seasons, years and epochs.
