Ones to Watch: Joanna Cole

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

The post-impressionistic landscapes of painter Joanna Cole merge the pastoral plains of Australia with a personal expression of colour and brushstroke. Although the forms that appear on her contemporary canvases draw from scenes the artist has experienced on her road trips throughout the countryside, Joanna eschews a faithful portrayal of place, instead reassembling her memories via symbolic processes that are heavy with themes of romanticism and wonder. The past few years have seen the work of the artist exhibited in a number of group shows and prizes. Most recently, Joanna was asked to take part in the Movers and Shapers exhibition at Hazelhurst Gallery in the south of Sydney. Last year, the artist was honoured as a finalist in the NSW Parliament En Plein Air Painting Prize.
