Contemporary Mixed Media,Figurative , Abstract Painting "Twins" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton

   FRESH OFF THE EASEL...





This was a demo piece in how to do transfers...easily! It includes a photo of an artist friend of mine and her twin sister. (I'm fascinated with twins.) Included are yellowed pages from an old copy of War and Peace, transfers of the sisters, trees, and a painted picket fence. They are looking at me from the other side of the fence, perhaps because they are in the "twin club" and I am not.

Contemporary Abstract Landscape Painting "Pool of Light" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton


   FRESH OFF THE EASEL...





Working intuitively means I never know what a painting is going to look like. You might discover in this painting, a distant home with light around it, a trickling stream and a pond. But you would not know that underneath is a forest painting. It intrigues me that multiple images, thoughts, impressions, and emotions, are layered over top of each other. Different places on the planet, different metaphors about life, are juxtaposed.

Contemporary Abstract Landscape Painting "Meditation" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton



Coming from the prairies of Wyoming I see most paintings with horizontals as landscapes, but this painting could easily be a seascape, given the many blue hues and the reflective qualities. I see a hint of a ladder in the subtle markings of the surface and there is an opening in the center which might represent a sort of doorway into the empty, quiet, mind, that can be achieved in moments of meditation.

Contemporary Abstract Painting "Incidence" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton



 The title Incidence at the Edges, reflects the design concept of not having the visual entertainment at the perimeters of the design...I often heard, "Don't have incidence at the edges". This rule has gone out of favor with many, and I am one. I often prefer having a quiet meditative space in the middle of the composition.

Contemporary Abstract Landscape Painting "The Heart of the Morning" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton


 



I'm happy with the layers I achieved in my Nanaimo, BC workshop demo. Began as a non-objective abstract, the horizontals began to indicate land and the verticals, trees; so I pushed these notions in that direction.

Contemporary Abstract Landscape Painting "Cedar Route" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton



I began this workshop demo with how I felt in my red Buick rental car, driving the roads around Nanaimo, BC. , with the huge Cedar Trees lining the roadway dwarfing my existence. I represented this with a small red dot and a very long, tall xerox of trees. I then collaged a bit of the local newspaper to the surface and noticed the word "route" in a byline. When I read it out loud, I realized I was saying "root", which related to the trees.

Contemporary Abstract Mixed Media Painting "CORTONA MEMORY" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton






As I pushed the paint around with no destination in mind, I began to see images of a hill and Cyprus Trees. The emerging shapes reminded me of Cortona, Italy. (I will be teaching there this May.) The warm reddish rust color hinted of rooftops and the warm patina of the ancient city. A pattern of rectangles implied the narrow cobblestone streets, and the quiet shape on the right of the hill could easily represent Santa Margherita Church. My fondness for this Tuscan venue came to life with each brushstroke. 

When turned the photo 180 degrees....I liked it even more...it was still Cortona, but at night...the road to the top of the hill had the Cyprus Trees flanking it, the wall around the city was grey and pronounced, and the light at the bottom of the composition seemed to lift the hill higher!
