'Factor', is an original drawing in pencil and collage. Hummel-Newell's work is concerned with the immediacy of spontaneous drawing.

For Joanne Hummel-Newell, mark making and its deviation from cognitive processes can create a candid outcome. It is a particularly generous enterprise, as Hummell- Newell allows the space in her work for found artefacts, bearing the traces of another’s hand.
