Joanie Krug

I am attracted to the unexpected, even the random event that occurs for each of us on a daily basis. My work challenges us to embrace the turnarounds in life that leave us with a different perspective and invites us to land in a new space.

As I approach a blank canvas, I plunge in to create that spontaneous moment. Loving color and line, I have always been drawing, particularly figures, the exaggerated gesture and how line intersects with color; the emotion of line and color shape, the subtle as well as the direct. Relying increasingly on my non dominant left hand for painting, due to my experience with Multiple Sclerosis, my work has taken on a looser and even more expressionistic quality.

My work mirrors the journey of relationships in day-to-day life. More than likely though, as the painting progresses, intrigued by the mystery and the provocative journey of painting, the initial image transforms in unexpected ways to become something differently alive.
