Los Angeles-based artist, Joanne Nam creates images that explore her childhood memories and experiences. The self-proclaimed horror movie aficionado fills her paintings with somber women and men in dark, sometimes sinister settings.
Joanne says of her work, “I mainly use oil paints when I create images. Most of subject matters of my paintings are from old memories. I used to live in a middle of forest and spent a lot of my time with wild trees and animals when I was young. However, I avoided reproducing simple images of those memories. The thing I was focusing on was the impression of them. The visual images in my head were vague and hard to tell, but I believed that the feeling of it was the thing that lasts.” [h/t artfucksme.com]
