Paintings by JokiGAMBIER, Ohio (September 3, 2010) The work of painter and printmaker Andrea Joki is presented at the Olin Art Gallery at Kenyon in an exhibition titled "Andrea Joki: Field Work."
The exhibition opened on August 26 and will continue through October 9. The Cleveland-based artist will discuss her work on September 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Olin Auditorium, 103 College Dr.
With roots in Minimalism, Joki is inspired by water, weather and the experience of travel between city, desert, forest and ocean. Joki's artwork aligns with the contemporary explorations of scientific mapping, population growth, information technology and architecture. Through the use of connective, repeating line and shape, Joki references human systems and organic structures.
Joki has exhibited her work at the Cleveland Museum of Art; Hiram College, Hiram, Ohio; Kulturrathaus, Dresden, Germany; Riffe Gallery, Columbus, Ohio; Spaces in Cleveland; William Busta Gallery, Cleveland; and Zygote Press Gallery, Cleveland.
