JOAN PURCELL GALLERIES

Joan Purcell is a versatile artist of exceptional talent. Her most recent innovation is painting on ancient coral slabs,re-creating beautiful underwater scenes on the actual substance that once formed the reefs.
Joan is a master etcher and lithographer, producing prints of lyrical quality with delicate lines or powerful patterns. Her sense of color is influenced by the Gauguin-gaudy tropical hues of the Florida Keys and the cool subtle tones of the Maine coast.

About Joan's One-of-a-kind Oil Paintings on fossil Coral:
Coral is a very special gift from nature. Tiny sea creatures,called polyps, build colonies of stone-like dwellings in myriad shapes. Over millions of years they have formed the offshore reefs and the foundations of the Florida Keys. Joan uses these fossilized remains as stone "canvases" to create a rare blend of ancient archaeology and contemporary art. They are individually shaped and each scene is painted with her own artistic expression.
