Landscape painting


Joanne’s passionate approach to the medium explores the sensory side of memory through texture and colour play. With an intuitive and expressionist approach, works are developed and advanced through a combination of natural paint/media behaviours and manipulation.

“Growing up in WA’s wheat belt hold so many wonderful memories which are the foundations and source for a lot of my works at present. Picking up the smells, sounds … the family picnics at Kokerbin Rock, sweeping bush covering in everlastings, road trips up north, all hold such a rich tapestry of emotions and sensations which are wonderful inspirations.”

'The Promise II'

acrylic on canvas, 92 x 46 cm





Landscape painting


The speed of wheels,
the heat, the flies
Hot sun rising over
deadened oats
Faster! Faster!
To the gate
Corrugated track,
scatter rabbits
Young hearts race
The cattle grid!
Orange and white rolls through
gravel and dust blowing.

Artist Statement


Born in Western Australia, Joanne Duffy uses her combination of a Bachelor of Arts (Design) and self-taught experience to depict the Australian landscape in an Expressionist style. Her paintings draw inspiration from her childhood experiences of rural WA and the love of native flora and its environment. Joanne’s abstract expressionist style explores her interests in our landscape and the emotional responses and memories it evokes within us. Her intense use of colour and sweeping brush marks create a sense of movement within her paintings, evoking glimpses of Australia’s rural landscape. The resulting artworks are reflective, full of vitality, intense colour and emotion.
