Joelle Cooperrider
Born 1983
B.F.A. from the University of Miami
Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA

Joelle’s abstractions are deeply rooted in reality...just not this one.  Using wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry pouring techniques, she creates paintings to "uncover vague spaces and specters".   Her art studio in Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles, CA is no stranger to the unseen forces of nature.  It is here that she employs the slow movement of gravity and tilted canvas, hot and cold wind gusts, and perhaps even sculpts with magnets to create peaks, valleys, wisps, explosions, drips, shimmers, and windows that culminate into intuition-driven “internal landscapes”.
