Price, Joanna

The Draftsman's Rule

Joanna Price studied at the New York Studio School in the late 1980s. While she was there, the artist became interested in the Greek vases of the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as in Romanesque art, both of which suggested to Price new ways of organising figures in space without resorting to conventional perspective or pictorial logic. Much of her work features groups of figures painted in monochrome against a plain background. Often, these groups consist of men in suits engaged in acts of violence or aggression as bystanders look on.
