Joy (Economos) McDonald is a visual artist.


Her work is an exploration of pattern and rhythms, a response to a changing environment. It engages all the elements of abstract expressionist art to create a visual reaction to her surroundings. The reflections in the landscape are interpreted in a reduced abstracted form. Fine linear markings are the units used to create sequences of paint as well as coloured layers of washes and strokes to generate the illusion of movement, shifts and changes in the land and sea. Sometimes her work is a synaesthetic response to the sound of water or the land and vegetation, translated into colour.
