From the artist:
“Houston artist Joan Son is a child of the 60’s. Her fascination with paper began with folded fortune tellers, tissue paper carnations and paper doll dresses. When she learned to fold an origami crane it felt like magic.
She debuted her origami art in the windows of Tiffany & Co., Houston Galleria in 1993. Joan has received assignments and orders from the National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. She has also worked with Houston Grand Opera, Art Institute in Chicago, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and Houston Center for Contemporary Craft among others.
Since 2017 she has explored her inspiration to paint cloud images in a deconstruction/reconstruction process. She cuts the painting into pieces, folds each one, then unfolds and reassembles the painting.
Joan continues to be crazy about paper and is guided by the directive from artist Agnes Martin, to have “obedience to inspiration.”
