ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST WORKS
Visit this section to see how Joan use colors to express profound emotions and memories. By gestural brush-strokes and mark-making you can feel the spontaneity coming from her soul.
Adding volumetric forms to the canvas allows the artist a different approach to what she is trying to express. Often over solid white backgrounds she creates these pieces that likes to call "Sculpture Series."
IMPORTANT EARLY WORKS
The very beginning of Joan's journey was characterized by closer-to-reality characters and vivid images of her loved ones. Faces of her daughters, male figures evoking her late husband, friends joyfully chatting and oneiric memoirs of her past homes.
FIGURATIVE & GENRE
Straight from Joan's mind arrives a set of characters that for one reason or another stuck in her head over the years. In these works she spreads on the canvas her vision and intimate remembrance of those figures, introducing us to a world that is a mix of the mystical and the perpetual.
In a few strokes Joan brings to life faces and their expressions. These inspirations usually translate in minimalistic black and white small portraits.
SILHOUETTE - COLLAGE WORKS
Assembling personal photographs and other printed materials, the artist recreates personal fantasies. An acute eye will find, hidden in the figures, pieces of Joan's life.
