J R Oatts - aka - Joanne Oatts, is a UK-based abstract artist, born in Essex, now based on the outskirts of London, on the Hertforshire border. She studied Art History at Middlesex University, and has since attended London's Slade School of Fine Art and Central St Martins for further painting and illustration training. Influenced by the mark making of Kandinsky, Lee Krasner and Georgia O'Keeffe, Joanne is fascinated by our perceptions - of ourselves, and the world around us. She's inspired by dramatic landscapes from her travels, sound and music, LGBTQ+ culture, technicolour, psychedelia and the intersection of art and science.
About my work:
I create colourful, vibrant and dramatic abstract art that explores unexpected connections between human emotion - and the patterns and shapes found in nature. I’m interested in how we connect to each other and the universe around us. My aim is to encourage curiosity about what we perceive, what we know and how it makes us feel - and to make bold art that provokes curiosity.
