Diane Rosenstein Fine Art is pleased to present The Black Mirror \, a group show curated by James Welling and Diane Rosenstein. This will be primarily an all-black show\, engaging the literal and associative propert ies of reflective black surface materials. The power and provocation of eac h work is in the proposal it makes for presence in the absence of a diversi fied palette.

\n

The Black Mirror\, opening Saturday\, Janu ary 19th\, will inaugurate Diane Rosenstein's new gallery at 831 North High land Avenue in Hollywood.

\n

The title of the show is inspi red by Henri Matisse's painting Anemones au Miroir Noir (1918-19) and also the history of artistic engagement with Claude glass\, convex mirrors used especially in the 18th and 19th century by painters. A layer of black tint was placed over the mirror's surface producing impure images. The convexity of the mirror and its shape were variable\, but in general were designed t o enhance perception at differing distances.

\n

The relatio ns of this exhibition's individual works to the conceit ofThe Black Mirror  are as complex as are their relations to one another. Each work alters the viewer's perception\, as might a Claude glass\, using\, by turns\, literal or figurative transformation of objects\, space\, and material to suggest d iffering relations between an artwork and a self.
