Cathy Diamond is a painter and curator based in Queens, New York. Her abstract paintings and works on paper bring together hybrid forms suggestive of trees, plants, insects and figures simultaneously. Different gestures of yearning, leaning, flying, drooping found in nature are used to create a latent figurative narrative. Diamond exhibits regularly in New York City, most recently in Magnum Opus, at 490 Atlantic Gallery and Unextinguished: The Episodic Landscape, at SRO Gallery. She curated Take your Pulse, at Joyce Goldstein Gallery, in Chatham, New York in 2017, and her current project, Earth Matters, for Greendoor Gallery, was postponed due to the Covid 19 virus. Solo shows include Andre Zarre Gallery, Valentine Gallery and the Painting Center. Her work traveled to international print fairs with Oehme Graphics. Diamond has received several Residency Fellowships. She is Adjunct Associate Professor of Art at Borough of Manhattan Community College.
