One Hand Clapping: Jo Sandman

Sandman’s innovative artistic practice explores complex interconnections between the physical world and the structural underpinnings of abstraction. Working with a variety of materials, including traditional artist tools and supplies, found objects, industrial hard goods and soft goods, Sandman realigns the connections between painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and assemblage with highly personal imagery. Each outcome is a supposition about the natural world and her own self-study.  Sandman studied with Hans Hofmann and Robert Motherwell at Black Mountain Collegeas an artist and educator, she has taught at Wellesley College, The Art Institute of Chicago and Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 2018, OMAA acquired 33 of her works through the Jo Sandman Legacy Project. The collection will be presented for the first time, alongside major pieces from public and private collections throughout New England. The exhibition is organized by the Ogunquit Museum of American Art and is generously supported by Barbara & Richard O’Leary.
