On Saturday, April 10, 2021, the Evanston Art Center is pleased to invite the public to the opening of Now and Then: Paintings by Joanna Pinsky.
Joanna Pinsky is a painter residing in Evanston, Illinois. Working with acrylics, she creates two-dimensional shaped paintings on canvas and gator board as well as rectangular works on paper. She works with shapes to suggest a dynamic presence that gives a greater sense of reality to the objects. Although flat, the objects are painted to give the illusion of depth. Central to all of her work is color often applied in layers and incised to reveal underlying colors.
Pinsky creates installations of the shaped paintings, hanging them so they seem to interact with each other. Nothing is hung parallel or perpendicular to the floor giving the appearance that the objects seem to be floating in space like memories when you fall asleep at night, collapsing time and place into unexpected relationships.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
