Description

Joan Morosani and Susan Spencer are excited and honored to be showing together for the third time at OWL. They draw from different approaches and traditions, but feel that their paintings perfectly complement each       other. Both painters attempt to express the immediacy of experience as seen through color, texture, line and surface tension.

Joan’s background is as a wallpaper and textile designer and as a decorative painter. Although one can still see the influences of pattern in her work, she seeks to use familiar objects and produce found locally in the subject matter of her still life. Some of her own textile designs are also used as a backdrop. She is interested in the interaction and tension between the manmade and the natural. Vibrant color and the immediacy of the visual experience are also parts of what she is expressing in this body of work.

Susan paints non objectively, letting the colors, shapes and spaces guide her deeper into the creative process. On a typical painting she will spend time placing her hands on the canvas or paper, slowly moving her hands around the surface until imagination emerges. “I love the feeling of paint on a brush, as it leads me into the painting.” Sometimes Susan uses a piece of wood or a tool to manipulate the paint and texture. This collection of work expresses the joy of her work and love of color and shape.
