Event

Cosmic Horizons, New Paintings From Joanne Shank at The Venue
Artist Statement -
My art starts with exploring color combinations I see in nature which is my endless resource and inspiration. After mixing colors I spread the acrylic paint with my hands across a non-absorbent surface allowing the paint to puddle and flow. I am intrigued by the magic that occurs in spontaneity creating new images.
Though I have spent a number of years painting with bamboo brush and watercolor, I’m returning to a style that I first started exploring when attending the Art Institute of Chicago and have only returned to occasionally since. I have decided to re-find my “flow,” and explore “new horizons.”
Because much of the “flow magic” occurs in small areas, I have enlarged and printed some of the images creating new compositions and depicting imaginary environments.
Joanne is a long time resident of Bloomington. She is a member of the Indiana Watercolor Society,
the Bloomington Watercolor Society and the founder and President of Arts Alliance of Greater Bloomington.
