Artist Joanne Freeman's works on paper and linen utilise geometry and are influenced by architecture and design. They were initially influenced by the symbols and signage found on the streets of New York. That early visual language emerged into a reductive formal language with roots in modernist aesthetics and ideology.
The Aquatint series pays homage to the simple direct graphics of midcentury media. They specifically reference the low tech, graphics found on album covers and paperback novels of the era. The use of loose geometry and idiosyncratic compositions, recall the cut outs of Matisse, while also elevating the graphics of the past through the beauty of the medium.Paper size: 28" x 26" (71cm x 66cm). Plate size: 18" x 18" (46cm x 46cm). Limited Edition of 20. 100% Rag Paper Copperplate Warm White. Aquatint made with oil based Charbonnel Etching Ink.
