Joellyn Duesberry is among the most important artists working in Colorado today and is considered to be one of the most significant landscape painters in the West. Waterways, cityscapes, quarries, junkyards, and natural landscapes are all part of Duesberry’s visual language. She suggests ephemeral aspects of these places, such as passage of time, atmosphere, and transitory human presence.
Included in this exhibition are more than 50 “high-voltage” paintings of landscapes from the American West, the northeastern United States, and Europe, covering the artist’s range and development from the 1980s through 2013.
I am fiercely committed to my materials and to an internalized subject, blissful or terrifying, in deepest emotional memory, which I projected long ago onto the setting where first emotions occurred. I have attempted to re-create these primal motifs in new places. From my first landscape painting I became a part of the landscape, with a good animal understanding of it while within it. No matter the continent or square foot upon which I set an easel, I seek an authentic, direct, and high voltage response to the land on canvas. ~ Joellyn Duesberry
