  5. 5. Joanne Hummel-Newell: Electricity (detail) A r t i s t i n F o c u s : 2 3 N o v e m b e r – 11 J a n u a r y Joanne Hummel-Newell Drawing Collages Collecting ephemera is an important part of Joanne’s creative process. She gathers things, scraps, shopping lists, tickets found on the street, at a train station, pockets, all of a particular appearance; discoloured, loved, lost, stained and beautiful. Pasted found notes or manuscripts are employed because of Joanne’s anthropological interest in mark-making. Creating ‘accidental art’ forms is a rule of her compositions. Joanne says: These ‘drawing collages’ are best compared to the pages of a book, constructed from detailed marks and materials imploring a need to be held and viewed intimately. Joanne is based on the Isle of Wight. She has an MA from the Royal College of Art, and has exhibited in London, Berlin, Rome and the 54th Venice Biennale. She was featured in an Observer article titled ‘Next generation turns its back on Emin and Hirst’s conceptual artworks’ in 2011.
