Josette Urso
Say Yes, Red, White, Pink, Lilac, Burgundy, Yellow Green Abstract Patterns

2017

About the Item

Thoughtfully combined sections of varying textures and areas of pattern, stripes, circles, dots and undulations are cheerful in bright, exuberant color. Little moments in red, burgundy, bright pink, lime green, yellow, orange, and shades of blue and white within the layers of oil paint make the work especially rewarding. Signed, dated, and titled on verso. Josette Urso makes paintings working directly and urgently in response to her immediate environment. Her approach involves moment-to-moment extrapolation governed by intuitive leaps of scale, color, and wayward geometry. Contrasts and cross-fertilizations unfold and are cumulative, nonlinear, free-flowing, and interpretive. Space becomes an ambiguous and malleable substance; its manipulation and acrobatic mark-making become a kind of gymnasium of expertly-placed color and shape. “For me, painting parallels the act of seeing and is the most direct link to private time with the physical world. Despite the urgency of my process, as I work, time still slows down. My work becomes a record of this exploration and a reflection of my inherent energy and reason for living.” - Josette Urso, 2017 The artist is the recipient of grants from The Adolph and Ester Gottlieb Foundation and The Pollack-Krasner Foundation, The Basil H. Alkazzi Award, USA and has been honored with residencies at Yaddo, UCross Foundation, and The Millay Colony for the Arts in the United States, as well as residencies in Spain, Germany, Ireland, Cambodia and Taiwan. Urso’s artwork has been acquired by numerous museums and private collections worldwide, including The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY, Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa, FL, Stadtmuseum, Schwandorf, Germany and Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, OH, to name a few. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
