DESCRIPTION

Addington Gallery is pleased to present New Paintings on copper by Joan Holleb.

In this exhibition, Joan Holleb presses forward in her pioneering path of mixed media painting. Using large sheets of copper, Holleb stages controlled accidents, pouring chemical patinas across the copper and observing how the colors change and the patinas flow. Her process then become a response in oil paint to that event, further inspired by her observations of nature Says Joan, “My latest work is my poetic translation of a day. Taking a moment in time and space, deconstructing that moment, finding the core elements and putting it back together with my own language of line, color and materials.”

Special Theatrical Performance at the end of the reception!
