Biography

In her paintings and monoprints, Joan Busing expands upon the legacy of Abstract Expressionism in the 1980s. Similar to artists like David Reed and Marylyn Dintenfass, Busing uses layers of thin color, applied in gestural strokes and playful geometric patterns. She creates many of her images by painting on Plexiglas, then transferring them to paper using a press, making a unique, irreproducible print. The satiny veils of blue, turquoise, and gray in touching or overlapping circles and wandering lines create imaginative space and depth in the image plane. The artist has also made prints that complement the Romantic lieders of the composer Robert Schumann.
