    About The Work

    Some of Joan Jonas’ most recognizable and recent works on paper feature images of animals (winged bugs, fishes, the nude human) with obvious bilateral lines of symmetry drawn in wet media, often times ink. This work, from 2017, features an illustrative depiction of a snake coiled in on itself​ (an animal at once always linear, yet always volumetric) originally rendered in green and yellow dry media. A pioneer of both video and performance art, Joan Jonas has been a significant figure in the international art world for decades and continues to work in video, installation, sculpture, and drawing, as well as with musicians and dancers across disciplines.
