Joan Waltemath
In Latencies, Joan Waltemath’s abstract paintings focus on constructing spatial voids using harmonic progressions and non-traditional, reflective pigments in oils. She uses interference pigments, graphite, and the juxtaposition of reflective and absorptive surfaces that change as you move toward and around the paintings. The material is rendered to affect a sense of presence, a power that is latent until the viewer experiences it. Roughly the size and shape of a human torso, the paintings are meant to give the viewer a corporeal feeling, and through visual means engage both mind and body.

Waltemath received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from Hunter College. She has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and internationally, including solo shows in New York; Basel, Switzerland; London; Brussels; and Bonn, Germany. Her work is in many noted public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Muse de Beaux Arts, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
