Joyce Frizell

Joyce’s drawings and paintings of owls are at once beautiful and haunting. Joyce’s choice of materials makes for a remarkable contrast to her preferred technique: Joyce uses a tremendous range of tools, but her elaborate images are built up slowly from a very restricted range of gestures. Joyce’s enthusiasm for a consistent, repetitive rhythm of marks is matched by a great enthusiasm for color. Each creature she creates is composed of the most carefully chosen palette. It’s this dual affection for color and energetic line that is the wellspring of her daily artistic practice.
