Joanne Freeman's works on paper are made with gouache on handmade Indian Khadi paper. She uses tape to mask out shapes and employ hard edges, working spontaneously, placing down a shape and then building upon it.
Her use of singular color accentuates the interplay of ground, foreground relationships.
Freeman tries to merge random gestures and idiosyncratic shapes with a controlled and reductive abstract language.
This piece is part of a series titled "Covers", it pays homage to the graphic style of album covers, paperback book covers and media that permeated mid-century popular culture.
The limited choices of early printing technology leant itself to simple, direct and innovative compositions that Freemans also strives for.
