Jo Ann Biagini creates multilayered, collaged artworks inspired by the natural world. Reconfiguring pages from books about nature, and playing with imagery through drawing, painting, image transfer, layering and sanding, she explores connections among elements and patterns, both real and imagined. With these additive and subtractive processes, enhanced by improvisations of shape, color, scale and meaning, she evokes a sense of curiosity and mystery about the workings of the natural world and our relationships to it. “Pentimento” refers to the many corrections or repentances that are painted over and changed in the process of creating her works.
