American, b. 1955

Using an unconventional reductive technique, Joe Andoe paints monochromatic and earthen-colored farm animals (particularly horses), horns, and other natural and household subjects. To begin with he usually covers primed canvas or paper with a single color and incises the outline of his subject. He then creates the image by wiping away the layers of still wet paint within the outline. The contrast between the density of the background and the image comprised of the smeared and blurred underlying surface creates a sunken relief within the painted background. The shifts in tone and shadow are intended to eerily evoke twilight landscapes and dreams. Andoe is also an accomplished memoirist, best known for Jubilee City: A Memoir at Full Speed (2007), a meditation on his path to becoming an artist.
