Portrait of Joan Duff Bohrer






My work is deeply involved in the layering of drawn images, adding veils of color, the destruction and reconstruction of forms and a gradual simplification using the tools of my trade: mark making, lines, and gestural color.

My subject matter includes emotional states, contradictory forces, and transience in all levels of life. Having been described as “an abstract painter with discernible references to the natural world”, I realize that I often find icons for these forces in the natural world: flowers, birds, cages, vessels of all kinds, hooks, chairs, ladders, fragments of words, amaryllis bulbs, and garlic bulbs (my newest icon)..

I believe that orchestral music and abstract painting relate. Both involve the imagination of the viewer/audience to be appreciated.
