Evolution Series 

Joan Stuart Ross’s work is inspired by imagery of growth and generation. Her explorations and inventions of color relationships, their juxtapositions and dynamic arrangements, are all intrinsic to her work. To engage color as value and depth is the crux of her art’s search for life force, energy, and meaning.


The vigorous forms in Joan’s paintings, prints, and drawings are inspired by kinetic natural shapes such as the poplar tree, the hydrangea blossom, and the oyster shell. As Joan layers color and mark, pictorial forms, rhythm, repetition, and diversion lead her to reveal the luminous spirit of things.
