Diana Madriaga’s This Is NOT a Painting Show, challenges the conception of painting. Her sculptures, comprised of wood and textiles, will be on display in the Upstairs at the Market Gallery, located at 1057 S. San Pedro St. in Los Angeles from February 12th through the 24th, 2013. In this 3 part series, Madriaga’s uses recycled lumber and tree remnants found in downtown Los Angeles. The artist references textile processes, production, and methodologies by staining the wood with fabric pigment, and also incorporating her unique process of dying fibers with sawdust waste. The first series includes a grouping of handcrafted easels with the backsides facing forward, intended to emphasize the easels’ craftsmanship. Each easel holds a word-puzzle on canvas that plays off of contemporary painting. The two complimentary series are wall -mounted sculptures that address the classification of artworks by virtue of their local and medium.  The show opens on February 16th from 6-8 PM
