Joanne Hummel-Newell’s work is driven by the instantaneous and forever changing concerns of consciousness. Human habits and social behaviour inform an improvised process which combines collage, painting, and installation, sometimes of public nature and not limited to the confines of a gallery.
Carnivals, festivals and other found forms of creative expression fuel the colours and primitive quality of what she creates. The work forms a continuous investigation into representing a human expression which is honest, handcrafted and not designed, with paper being a primary materials due to its familiar nature, having been touched by the hands of many.
Joanne Hummel-Newell (b. 1982) trained at the Royal College of Art London and was hailed as ‘the next generation to turn its back on Emin and Hirst’s conceptual works’ by the Observer. Joanne has exhibited internationally including the 53rd Venice Biennale, Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and Jerwood Drawing Prize, as well as being shortlisted for the Beers London Contemporary Visions exhibition. Commendations include Head of collections at Soho House, Kate Bryan, as one of the ‘Must see artists at the Other Art Fair’ and the Times Newspaper ‘Picking up a Picasso is one click away’.
Joanne has a growing international collector base and is included in public and private collections in UK, US, Hong Kong, Europe and Australia.
