The Diamond and Cedric Combo with side of Paul Klee

Paul's Diamond by Diamond Snowden and Cedric Michael Cox


Working with Visionaries and Voices artist Diamond Snowden for Double Vision II ,was an absolute pleasure. As a studio coordinator at V&V, I have always shared with Diamond my experiences working in my studio and the ritual of painting. The Visionaries and Voices Double Vision project was a chance for both Diamond and I to collaborate and understand each other’s process. Side by side in my studio and at V&V we planed and executed this painting together pushing, pulling and refining architectonic imagery that referenced allegories in music and urban text design and pattern. The piece “Paul’s Diamond” is named after Paul Klee. Like Mr. Klee, Diamond also had an influence on me. He not only created a design that celebrated both of our interest in representational abstraction, he also gave me new insight on a recent piece that I am currently working on. Come out and see other great collaborations of V&V artist with other local artist at Double Vision on April 23rd at Memorial Hall.
