ABOUT JOUANNE ROBERSON
  
Many of my early drawings began with Crayola, gouache, or oil stick, then the magic... Through cut away, rearranging, and layering techniques, similar to that of Japanese paper-cut-art called Kirie (Kiri-e = cut-pictures), the digital image undergoes a myriad of wave patterns accented with light and shadow. These paintings complete photo-emulsions even as they are laboriously handcrafted these simple drawings transform into intriguing new forms that cause the eyes to dance. My ensemble work, expresses the need to be understood. I want my art to convey intricate detail as precisely as writers use words to create imagery... In doing so, I can expand the viewers vocabulary of symbolism in the global quest to be truly more connected.
