As one of David Diao's artistic ancestors, Russian Suprematism‘s founder Kazimir Malevich has a profound influence on his art-making. In Hiding In Plain Sight (2018), Diao picks Kazimir Malevich’s Eight Red Rectangles (1915), which was shown in the Last Futurist Exhibition of Paintings 0.10, 1915, as a referent. Here Diao presents the same painting in two directions. In addition, since abandoning gestural abstraction in the mid-seventies, his paintings have been characterized by smooth surfaces and solidly painted sonorous color achieved by repeated passes with palette knives. Hiding In Plain Sight (2018) is among the few instances where he has allowed a more gestural and open surface to remain in the finished work. It is another ancestral reference, in a way, recalling his process-oriented paintings of the early seventies, and may portend future works to come - a radical stride for an artist of Diao's significance.
