OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 6:30-8:30 PM
Adrienne Joy presents an intimate suite of expressionistic oil paintings that are based on photographs she took of people and situations that sparked her curiosity while traveling on the streets, and in the public transportation, of London, Glasgow and Paris. The source images are a collection of chance encounters and random snapshots, in the tradition of street photography. Joy then created reimagined portraits developing a psychological connection to each subject through a trial and error method of unplanned painting. A selection of these will be on display.
I hope to make emotional paintings, both beautiful and scary, of people and situations that would normally be seen as mundane and overlooked.
Adrienne Joy received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Printmaking. She worked as a Master Printer of etchings for many years while living in Chicago. She now lives and works in San Diego and focuses her time on painting.
