Art Brokerage: Joe Andoe American Artist: b. 1955. Joe Andoe was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1955. He graduated with an MFA from the University of Oklahoma Norman, OK in 1981. Andoe's work is instantly recognizable, as his world of light versus dark carves out an image of substance from absence. He extends his use of a monochromatic, earth-colors and Andoe's images are reduced to next to nothing. Joe Andoe explains, "I want to reduce images to their blueprint." Andoe strives for an utter distillation of image, ground, and color in his work. Not surprisingly, his inventory of subjects remains basic: horns, wreaths, candles, flowers, cornstalks, trees, cattle, buffaloes, lambs, sheep, and horses. Joe Andoe's work can be found at MOMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Listings wanted.
