"Joanne Robertson’s large scale paintings evoke a rhythm of process and improvisation that connects directly to the artist’s intertwined music practice. Her layered approach to painting creates depth and movement; the brushstrokes an extension of the artist’s hand as she moves across the canvas with fluid precision. Sometimes, bodies appear abstracted in her canvases, hidden between layers of paint, while others allude to the written word in sweeping gestures." — Steven Cairns
