About The Artwork

'Enigma' is a painting inspired by the works of French artist Pierre Soulages. The painting consists of strong gestural brushwork on a gold background. There are also markings where the black paint has been removed to show the gold underpainting. The result is spontaneous and intense. This is a bold piece that can work in a variety of settings. The work is ready to hang with a wire attached. The composition continues to include the sides of the work so that no frame is required. The sides are predominantly gold with a bit of the black composition running into the top and bottom edges. Please note that the in situ images are for display purposes only and may show framing options if desired. This work is sold unframed. The work is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity

Born in Montreal, Quebec, Joyce is an internationally collected Multidisciplinary Painter and Sculptor living and working in Toronto. While her main focus is Abstract Expressionist painting, she also has a passion for sculpting and drawing the human form for which she was academically trained. Over the last twelve years, Joyce has exhibited in solo and group shows within Canada and internationally. Featured on several occasions in American Art Collector magazine since 2009, her work is found in private and public collections in Canada, the USA, and Europe. STATEMENT "My paintings are Abstract Expressionist and entirely conceptual. They are bold and passionate created with conviction in response to a specific emotion or state of being. Working medium to large in size I start by randomly applying heavy-bodied Gesso to the canvas to create a geometric design. I then use this design as a template for acrylic paint application. I rarely use colour directly from the tube and prefer instead to mix my own. I feel this lends an intimacy to the work. Using large brushes and/or palette knives I allow some paint to drip while scraping out various areas to reveal the underpainting. My goal is to say as much as possible without having a big discussion. I want people to see what uniquely speaks to them, depending on their own situation. People see different things in my work. Movement, Colour, and Passion are words I often hear people use when they speak about my work. I have been most influenced by the great Abstract Expressionists of post-World War II America. Specifically, I feel my work most resembles what one would see if Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline, and Hans Hofmann had collaborated to paint something together."
