“Paintings and Recent Work”
Hermine Ford and Joan Witek
OUTLET, 253 Wilson Ave., Brooklyn, NYC
paintings by Hermine Ford and recent works by Joan Witek, two New York artists exhibiting since the early 1970s. For Witek, who has been exhibiting extensively in Europe, this exhibition marks the first focused show of her work in New York City in over a decade.
“I am attracted to black is because of the beauty of the color and for me, its infinite variety. It is a color that has been my inspiration since I began painting.” - Joan Witek
“For a long time I’ve been stealing oddly shaped forms from nature and the color of artificial overlays that scientists use to diagram natural processes… While there are decorative elements, found all over both the ancient and modern world, these themselves were derived from natural forms and patterns.” - Hermine Ford
