Joy Black

Joy Black

I tell stories through painting. Sometimes I am conscious of the story when painting, but most often not, and it is only when I look back that I see I have connected with an energy beyond the room in which I was painting. I do not try to control that energy - I give it life, and time, to become what it is meant to be, and that is how my paintings take form. Some of the stories are sad, but even sadness holds the potential for joy. My paintings depict the joy and the light that is possible regardless of the story.
