▂ Joan Mitchell ▂

On my recent trip to New York, I discovered the work of Joan Mitchell while staying in the building Joan's studio use to be in on Saint Marks Place. Her paintings amaze me! Klaus Kertess said it best:

 “She transformed the gestural painterliness of Abstract Expressionism into a vocabulary so completely her own that it could become ours as well. And her total absorption of the lessons of Matisse and van Gogh led to a mastery of color inseparable from the movement of light and paint. Her ability to reflect the flow of her consciousness in that of nature, and in paint, is all but unparalleled.”
