The Journey #2
San Francisco native, Joan Brown was recognized early in her career as a major talent working in the style that became identified as Bay Area Figurative. She developed personal iconography that combined people, places, and events she had known intimately with symbolic imagery in a style that became identified by critics as California myth-making. She created this enamel on canvas painting at Terminal 2, San Franciso International Airport titled The Journey #2. This painting refers to her personal journey, set against a San Francisco skyline.
