‘Division’ is part of a new body of work, which is concerned with layers and hidden stories. Hummel-Newell is interested in exploring how we communicate with each other online and how it is easy to only reveal small parts of ourselves or edited versions.

The colours are a palette taken from the landscape where the artist works. It is a coastal seaside town with bright pastel buildings, beach huts and bleached wooden signs.

Artist Details

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 a 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 material due to its familiar nature, having been touched by the hands of many.

Joanne Hummel Newell (b 1982) studied at Kingston University London from 2001 – 2004 and at The Royal College of Art, London, from 2004 -2006.
