Joyce Weiss

Color is my life- I use it at full volume. I work with acrylic or oil paint and often include three-dimensional objects, collage, photographs, and text in my work. My world is populated by imaginary characters and reality bites. The distant past, the volatile present, and our constantly evolving future provide the major inspirations for my work.

In this new group of paintings, I explore the relationship between color and form. The excitement of two opposites colliding in space, the juxtaposition of light and dark bright and dull sharp and rounded lines and dots. This emotional roller coaster of passion, dreams and nightmares exist in my world of color.

With my paintings and writings, I attempt to expose the fantasies that elude us in our waking hours, and the real-life events that affect the human condition, at this the beginning of the twenty-first century.
