Stamford, CT - Explore the latest works of award winning Fairfield, CT artist, Joanie Landau at her solo show titled “Rumble ‘N Sway” in the Phillips and West Galleries at 575 Pacific Street from June 1 to June 30, 2019, with an opening reception on Saturday, June 30 from 6-8 pm.
“Friedrich Nietzsche stated, “Without music life would be a mistake.” For my abstract series, “Unplugged,” I tap into my lifelong fascination with music’s raw emotional power. Music can instantly change my state of mind and hammer away at inner commotion. When I work on my art, the music is on, LOUD, and I embrace the rhythm and the sound vibrations,” states artist, Joanie Landau. “Creating art without music would be like trying to work in total darkness. My first solo show at the LAA, “Rumble ’N Sway,” is comprised of all new pieces from this collection. Each work begins with original photography, which I digitally manipulate until I am satisfied with the outcome. I love working with saturated color as well as starkly contrasting black and whites. I very often do a study of the same piece in all its beautiful transformations. The digital art experience provides an outlet to be unceasingly creative, continually working and reworking pieces with the click of a mouse. Every new layer or filter creates endless possibilities, tapping into the unlocked potential that exists and providing the feeling that there are no barriers.”
