Johanna Gillman

Artist's Statement

"Music, dance, rhythm, theme and variation, create patterns of movement through twisting planes. Some areas are ripped open, others overlaid, still others explode beyond the perimeter. Order evolves out of chaos, creating an invention of spatial ambiguity and biomorphic form. Color is the catalyst on a spiritual journey in search of magical harmony, tonal balance and contrapuntal mystery. From representational to abstraction. From the rectangle to the extension series to the shaped canvas, the work has gone from containment to unlimited freedom."

Johanna Gillman lives in New York City. She has been painting for 45 years. Her work is in the permanent collections of Chubb Corporation, NYC; The Leidesdorf Corporation, NYC; Columbia University, NYC; Yeshiva University Museum, NYC.
