Joanne Ritson has been working with darkness for a while.
Tenebrism is a great word. It’s from the Italian tenebroso (murky). Dramatic contrasts of light and dark. Then the darkness takes over.
Is Joanne a Tenebrist? Maybe a way to think of her dark works.
This painting belongs to a series of many mountains small and large. Serial mountains.
The content arising from repetition. Repetition as a form of expression. Like a reverie?
