Shortly after I moved from Japan in 2005, my mother sent a special gift. The package contained beautiful landscape drawings that my grandfather, an industrial designer, did while serving in World War II. The series of 5 x 7-inch works juxtaposed extraordinary detail with the minimalist use of simple black ink on paper. Because he passed away before I was born, those drawings became a special interaction for me. Having focused on colorful, figurative oil painting since college, I was captivated by the power of simple black lines and the vitality of the empty spaces which seemed to give life to the work.
His work has taken me to study the use of minimal colors and basic forms such as dots, lines, and gradient ink droppings. I use these elements maximally not only to create forms but also to create a feeling of metamorphosis or the creation of life.
Conceptually, my work explores two ideas: First, the influence of insignificant things in the creation of important things. Simple dots combine to create focal shapes. Second, our beautiful struggle to control the uncontrollable things in life’s journey. The free-flowing ink dropped on wet surfaces represents uncontrollable things and contrasts the intentionality of rigid and detailed line drawings, which represents the patterns of our efforts to find meaning and move on.
Jo-Ann Acey is a member of the 440 Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Her studio is located at the Brooklyn Art Cluster Studios in the arts community of Gowanus. Acey received an MFA in Painting and Drawing from Texas Tech University. Her work has been included in shows in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Texas, New Mexico and is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
In regard to her work, Acey says, “Although there are recognizable images that lend themselves to land and seascapes, the real essence lies in the symbolism of each work. The paintings and drawings are visual diaries documenting memories, personal events, imagined and magical places. My images are quick glimpses into life, telescopic views of places and things. The works are at once real and imagined. My work explores several media including oil, acrylic, water media and pastel. Spontaneity and energy are always important elements. I often use vast open spaces and other times I take a very close intimate view of the subject.”
In addition to making art, Acey has taught art for over 35 years. She has designed and implemented art curriculum for the nationally acclaimed Studio in a School Program and the United Nations International School in New York City. Acey is the recipient of the “Sustained Achievement Award For Artists Who Teach.”
