Umarmung or marsha’s two ways: Joan Waltemath @ Pulse

If you’re in Miami, check out Joan Waltemath’s paintings at Elizabeth Leach’s booth in Pulse. Readers might remember that Waltemath and I wrote about a studio visit exchange last year. Director of MICA’s Hoffberger School of Painting, Waltemath makes sublime abstract paintings using hand-ground pigments and minerals on aluminum panels. The subtlety of the surfaces, the vibrant clarity of the color, and the hovering spatial illusions aren’t discernible in jpegs, and Waltemath doesn’t show much in NYC (although she should), so make sure to stop by and see her beautiful  paintings first hand.

Joan Waltemath, Umarmung or marsha’s two ways (West 5 1,3,4,7…), 2007-12 oil, pewter, zinc and florescent pigment on honeycomb aluminum panel, 36.5 x 17.25 inches.
