Daniel Cooney Fine Art
Daniel Cooney Fine Art is truly honored to present "Even Flowers Bleed," a debut solo exhibition of watercolor paintings by artist Jamie Diaz dating from 2013-2022. These works are being shown for the first time to the public from the personal collection of Gabriel Joffe, co-curator of this exhibition and Jamie’s close friend. In addition to her paintings, a selection of Jamie’s original comics will be on display.
Jamie Diaz is a Mexican American trans woman and artist currently incarcerated in Texas. All the paintings in the exhibition were made in her cell with the very limited supplies available on the inside. "Jamie is a spunky, boundary pushing artist whose work is a revolutionary testament to the power of queer prisoner creation," remarks longtime collaborator and director of A.B.O. Comix, Casper Cendre.
The gallery will host a public opening on September 15 from 6 – 8 pm EDT.
