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
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.

Louise Davies, Secret
Mountain. Etching, £220.
This particular piece
comes from sketches
that I did whilst in Spain.
However, the colours and
composition allow the
image to be somewhere
else. I wanted to evoke the
concealed mysteries and
secrets that are hidden in
the silent Mountains.
