featured artist resident for May 2019
“Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.”
All her endeavors have come together to form her unique creative vision and her down to earth aesthetic, characterized by her passion for textures, revealing layers by distressing, building organic forms inspired by natural objects. Rough and refined, primitive and spontaneous, ultimately paring things down to become one-of-a-kind artworks.
Her pieces have many textures, each layer building upon fragile clay elements, reminiscent of bones, cocoons and other earthy elements, to create whimsical collages or small sculptures that uniquely juxtapose disparate naked elements torn out from excessive decor.
She exposes marginal, abandoned, unwanted elements that for her, become the essence of transformation. Joanna is driven by the feeling that each end is a new beginning--so she tracks the essence of the past to become part of a future mystery.
“Let me keep my mind on what matters which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished.” Mary Olivier
