Abstract painter Joanne Freeman does not rely on direct observation but rather process and precedence. The title These Days, borrowed from the song written by Jackson Browne in the late 1960’s, conjured up comparisons to her own state of mind during her daily studio practice where the realities and upheavals of the external world collide with the inner workings and solitude of her studio. The reductive abstract paintings are about the beauty of singular color, the impact of pure abstract forms and the quiet order that cuts through the noise.
