Joanna Pinsky is a painter residing in Evanston, Illinois. For nearly forty years, she has been creating two dimensional shaped paintings. Initially, she explored color and perceptual concepts in geometric shaped canvases. These evolved into textural works that pitted natural textures such as sand, sawdust and gravel, against geometric shapes. The next series were large scale invented shapes inspired by aerial views of landscape. In the 1990’s she began to develop paintings based on photographs of architectural structures including buildings, bridges and viaducts. Recently, she has been creating installations of small works on gator board. Arranged in unexpected positions, these architectural forms seem to be whirling in space.
