Joan Mellon

For me, experiencing and thinking about color invigorates life in an increasingly fast-paced world. I have tried to make paintings that are objects of subtle and energetic color; explore a language worth listening to. The simplicity of the rectangle seemed best suited for these explorations. Hopefully the paintings are a pause in time, a private place where a viewer can bask in the vitality and soothingness of color and its adventures.

Joan Mellon's work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Franklin Furnace Archives, the New York Public Library, Artist's Books Collections, the School of Visual Arts, and several private collections.

Untitled
Blue lagoons encircle me
in the coolness of your orange arms
swallow me so I can breathe
breezes of the cobalt sun

suck me in and swirl me round
salt sweet lips salacious eyes
sing me Sarah's lullaby
in the twilight of my liguid cave
