The Art of Joellyn Duesberry
The veil of moist
Eastern light had obscured the geometry I sought in Nature
until, in mid-career, I awoke to Southwestern sculptural
light and dark, and the architectonic structure underlying
Western landscape in all seasons. As if my abstract sense
had been masquerading as landscape, I changed my
focus radically, delighting in the revealed TENSION between
illusion in depth and flat patterning on the surface of a
canvas, avoiding balance or resolve either way. "
solo gallery shows in as many years of exhibiting
nation-wide have resulted in 4 Museum surveys, the most
important of which is my 50 year retrospective with its
accompanying book Elevated Perspective: the Paintings of
Joellyn Duesberry, opening at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts
Center July 2- September 11, 2011. "
