    About The Work

    Joanne Freeman's works on paper are made with gouache on handmade Indian Khadi paper. She uses tape to mask out shapes and employ hard edges, working spontaneously, placing down a shape and then building upon it. Her use of singular color accentuates the interplay of ground, and foreground relationships.

    Freeman tries to merge random gestures and idiosyncratic shapes with a controlled and reductive abstract language.

    This piece is part of a series titled "Covers" that pays homage to the graphic style of album covers, paperback book covers, and media that permeated mid-century popular culture.

    The limited choices of early printing technology leant itself to simple, direct, and innovative compositions that Freeman also strives for.
