Artist Statement

Artists: Who could blame them for doing hommage to the beauty of the world?

I like to bring to light or unveil a core, a spirit, an inward nature of an object, scene or person. I go inside to find the soul, heart or attributes within. Always curious, I search with a joyful spirit.

Joan Malkerson opened Malkerson Gallery 408 in Carrizozo in 2005. You can view the Gallery HERE
