Visual Arts Viewpoint: Interview
with Artist Joan Belmar
Before you make your way to a table at the new Busboys and Poets in Takoma Park, allow yourself generous time to walk around
the space and contemplate the worlds inside Joan Belmar’s
paintings hanging on the walls. A palette of browns, whites and sepias
in granular textures evoke earthy terrain, while velvety black circles
suggest opaque nighttime skies. At times, bright colors assert
themselves uncompromisingly. Across portions of these mindscapes march
topographical stitching lines suggesting boundary demarcations; across
other portions meander lines of contour mapping. Belmar’s work is built
up layer after layer in a complex dance of opposites—transparent and
opaque, textural and smooth, organic and geometric, earthy color and
bright reds or blues.
