Club by Joyce Polance

Club by Joyce Polance

"My current series of paintings is about women's personal transformations and healing. I depict subjects who are in various states of emergence from patterns that have had a negative impact on their lives."-Joyce Polance

The effect of this piece is immediate.  An intense anger that cannot be expressed in a real world situation, becomes a painting that captures those feelings. This painting has become a part of the healing process because it is expressing emotions that the subject cannot express. The realistic style allows the subject to see their anger expressed in the world without anyone being injured. Many artists use their work to express how they feel. In this piece Joyce Polance has manged to express the feelings of someone else. It is an act of great empathy that aids the healing process.
