Joan said of her work:

My paintings use gouache or acrylic water-based medium, primarily landscapes generated first in plein air. Some are completed and further developed in the studio. This show of paintings at Center Gallery will represent an ongoing series that express my interest in how forms compose a landscape image.

The theme for this show is: Found Shapes—Uncovering landscapes. These images explore how shapes, both geometric and organic, come together to create compositions. They show my interest in how observed forms play with each other to create compositions. What are the visual relationships in how shapes find themselves together? Shapes interlock, and natural patterns occur. These combinations become abstracted when formalized in a painting. “Local” color sets the palette but the value range, light to dark, organizes the space.

I work from nature and use direct observation. These images, primarily landscapes, are developed in the field. Some are completed in plein air. Others are brought back to the studio to add layers of paint, re-evaluate values (dark to light) and readjust forms. Some images are worked in the studio from initial outdoor sketches to create larger paintings.
