High Tide II


by Joanne Williams

18"x18"x2.5" mixed media

My involved process to create the highly textured surfaces that I desire is one where I ultimately balance the spontaneity of sanding, scraping, pouring, glazing, laying gold leaf , spraying , marking with various mediums and tools with the careful focused editing and attention to detail and composition.

"It is not only because of their beauty that Joanne Williams’ paintings are exhilarating. The lyrical presence of her graceful forms, suspended in time and space, the layered veils of surface and the uniqueness of materials all serve to create a mythical realm of delicately balanced serenity. Williams works are about time, place, memory, magic, the past and the future." New Haven Register, J Birke
