Joanna Gilbert is an abstract artist, inspired by the innovation of what architecture stands for now. The use of reflection, shards of glass, diagonals, curves and composition allow architects to create art within a building. Joanna takes these buildings, these lines, these angles and then turns them into paintings.
Zaha Hadid, Lissitzky, Joself Albers enthuse her as well as the relatively new #Graffutarism movement with artists such as Remi Rough and LX one.
Using a combination of ink, acrylics, oils and spray paint Joanna uses colour, shape and design to give depth and illusion to a blank canvas. Diagonal shards are prominent in her artworks as a tool to lead the viewers eye around the canvas.
“I am really excited to be a part of the prestigious Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 204th Exhibition, Mall Galleries (6 to 16 April 2016)” Joanna Gilbert.
