Spirogyra, 2021, Acrylic on Birch Panel, 12 x 12 inches.
A painting showing a natural mystery.
Josephine Viviani writes about her introspective work: "My creative works reflect the integration of my experiences as an educator with my true joy in rendering the human form in multiple techniques, and my play with color, form, and line. I am intrigued by the variety of expression found in the study of heads and hands. The links between our head, hands and heart reveals the emotional well-being of our universe. Linked with a deep appreciation of nature and its symphony of color, line and form, I strive to integrate all these elements in my abstract works. The dialogue and interplay between these elements are reflected in my work."
Following an enriching career as an artist and instructor at Moore College of Art and Design, Tyler School of Art, as well as at the University of the Arts, Jo Viviani is presently focused on developing her creativity in her studio as well as in collaboration with other artists. Her enthusiastic belief in the power of creative collaboration has led her to work with many groups and talented artists resulting in transformative arts collaborations and partnerships. Josephine has shown her artwork in group shows at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Woodmere Art Museum, Moore College of Art & Design, the Plastic Club, Springboard Studio, the University of the Arts, the Kimmel Center, Cheltenham Center for the Arts, Ambler Art Center, the Oxford Art Alliance, and at Allen’s Lane Art Center. The two Solo Exhibitions of Jo’s art work at Cellini Art Gallery were successful events. One of her paintings is part of the permanent art collection at the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Her works are in a variety of private collections in the area. She is dedicated to her own lifelong learning, and to the improvement of creative expression through collaboration and continuous artistic development.
