Ali Silverstein - red, fluorescent orange vessels

“I’m more of a draftsman than a painter”, Los Angeles-based Ali Silverstein (*1980) says about herself. She puts puddles of color on her canvases, cuts out, arranges and rearranges - most of all, she improvises, which of course as a jazz musician appeals to me immediately. “I’m trying this experiment now where I’m not allowed to go back. So if I put that there and I genuinely want it to be there not to second guess it” (Westwoodwestwood July 17) - well doesn’t that sound familiar?
