Joanne Tarlin’s abstract paintings explore the human condition and portray her fascination with its complexity. Contemplating desire, fear, joy and death, Joanne “detaches” herself and becomes enveloped in their emotional essence. Her comprehension of those fundamental elements of our humanity speaks on the canvas through the dynamic selection of shape, color and texture. Reds scream. Swooshes soar. Cool grays calm. Dark spaces beg exploration.
