((Guttenberg NJ) Guttenberg Arts Gallery is pleased to present Parisian Hotel, an exhibition of new work by New Jersey based artist Joanne Ross. On view May 4th - June 8th, 2019 at Guttenberg Arts Gallery. The works included in Parisian Hotel display the poetic narrative of a ten day road trip from New Jersey to South Florida the artist took in early December 2018.
Artist Joanne Ross explains in her statement: “ My desire for this journey was to saunter and reencounter memory...see without intention...discover epiphanies and incidents of awe alongside the ordinary and unremarkable.”
Early childhood memories recall the joy of drawing and of 1950’s Florida for Ross...”alien, dangerous and enticing remain embedded in her memory.” Her art studies began not too long after at the Hudson River Museum School and continued throughout her school years growing up in Yonkers, New York. During high school, she discovered her father’s Rolleiflex camera. Both drawing and photography led to a life-long involvement with both mediums.
Joanne Ross uses photography, archival material and drawing to construct narrative works and installations. She traces themes of cultural history and memory; explores notions of identity, attachment, and place. Installations juxtapose objects with photographs that are often redrawn on the surface or digitally altered to suggest enigmatic, poetic narratives. Each work builds on a scaffold of fragility, hidden emotion and fleeting moments of time.
Joanne Ross holds a MFA in Photography from the SUNY Buffalo/Visual Studies Workshop, MS Art Education from Syracuse University and a BA Art Education from Buffalo State College. She has intertwined her art practice with education teaching Photography at the School of Visual Arts, Rockland Community College, Ramapo College, and the Bergen County, New Jersey Secondary School System.
Opening Reception on Saturday May 4th, 7 - 9pm. For more information please visit www.guttenbergarts.org/exhibitions or contact email@example.com. Guttenberg Art Gallery is free and open to the public by appointment.
