Starting with landscapes, I found myself creating mysterious and distant places hovering on the edge of reality.  Filling the canvas with lush vegetation and dense forests, I played with scale and space while relying on a base ground of gestural abstraction.  These landscapes evolved, as I began to include figures and create scenes dealing with the contradictions and complexities of contemporary life where no one is real.

Josephine Haden is an eloquent painter, a realist of sorts--I say “of sorts” because there’s an aura of eeriness to her
reality, however precisely (always precisely) rendered--but her images are also abstract, which no doubt adds to their uncanniness.
