Lois Lambert Gallery presents On Canyon Road, the most recent exhibition of work by artist Joan Robey.
Robey is always searching and experimenting with new mediums. To create this body of work, Robey first takes photographs at her desert home and prints them on vellum, mimicking the final effect of printing on plexiglas. Several of these images are then cropped, cut out, layered, collaged, and taped back together in a crude assemblage. The collages are digitally altered by erasing overlapping lines, editing out parts of images, shifting colors, or enhancing certain areas. Once Robey has created a composition that feels dynamic and deliberately chaotic, the image gets printed on plexiglas in its final form.
