When I see an artist taking an obsessive approach to pen and ink, I take notice. Joan Saló is not only obsessive, but her approach really highlights subtle color shifts that make a kind of even flow of motion. I can't help but think of rain in the "untitled" work above. As if I were watching the sea off the coast of Maine, I feel calmed by this work. The color contrast does, however, have a sense of tension or feeling of an underline event about to occur.
I happened upon this work from a blog titled The Jealous Curator. I like the fun angle the blog writers take on reporting about art.
