Andrea Joki - luscious and gooey
Sometimes a field painting is denied justice in a digital word. So here I'll start with a detail because this is what backed me up and made me look at Andrea Joki's work with greater care. These surfaces are luscious and gooey, denying and advancing space, it feels like you're looking through binoculars that come in and out of focus.
