Joan Lowndes: Mixed-Media and Inks

About the Artist:

I use sculptural form to create a contemporary interpretation of nature. Using the literal scene from nature, I distill and abstract, in order that the emotion evoked by the setting is interpreted in my painting. To that end I use water media to create a unique tactile surface that is both sensual and descriptive. I want people viewing my work to enjoy the sensation of touch as well as sight. I am a minimalist purposefully for I find the less I include in my work, the stronger emotional involvement of the viewer. My paintings are my eyes.
