Joyce Howell Solo Show

Joyce Howell Solo Show · August 4-September 1, 2018

Wally Workman Gallery will open its 6th solo show with abstract oil painter Joyce Howell. Howell’s palette has always been informed by nature and its flux between calm and chaos. She describes it as an ongoing conversation.  Each color and the mark by which it is applied to the canvas informs the next.  Colors give the impression of physical weight.  Colors become instruments, much as in a musical composition.  As the work progresses, the painting becomes a collaborative, a dialogue between Howell and the canvas.
