Joanna Pousette-Dart

New York, USA 1947

Joanna Pousette-Dart was born in New York City in 1947, where she currently lives and works. Her father, Richard Pousette-Dart, was a well-known abstract expressionist painter and founder of a painting school in New York City.

Joanna also studied painting, attending Bennington College in Vermont. During her studies, she met artists such as Kenneth Noland, Larry Poons and Jules Olitski, for whom she had deep admiration. In the 1970s, during her early twenties, Joanna left New York City and moved to New Mexico. This new landscape had a profound influence on her work, and in the 1990s she decided to abandon the rectangular format, preferring to create works on curved panels. The dynamism of her art reflects the constantly changing shape and light, as well as the open spaces and sense of the curvature of the earth (characteristics of the place where she lives). She carefully chooses the colour palette to create a luminous effect on the surface, reminiscent of the natural world. She draws from various artistic traditions, such as Islamic, Mozarabic, Catalan, Calligraphy, Chinese Landscape Painting, Maya art and Native American art.

Her works are held in public collections, internationally renowned, including Albright Knox, Buffalo, NY, USA; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, USA; Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, NY, USA; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY, USA; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, USA; Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, IN, USA; Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, NY, USA; Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR, USA; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY
