Joyce Weiss

Bold in her use of color and gestural abstraction, paintings by Joyce Weiss present brilliant visions of alternative worlds. At Full Volume II features a selection of paintings by the late Angels Gate Studio Artist, 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. [An] 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 in the twenty-first century.” – Joyce Weiss

Public opening reception: Saturday, August 20th, 3 – 5pm
