|"I consider myself a metaphysical abstractionist making images which come out of my life experience. The images in my paintings are not only drawn from visual inspiration, but from memory, dreams, travel, nature and reverie as well as the intuitive process of painting. I am interested in connecting the poetic image with the painted and in the metaphysical content of the painting. Color and Light are of foremost importance in my work." - Joan Thorne|
