A Thread Runs Through It

July 24, 2012

‘A Thread Runs Through It’ is a new commission for Airdrie Community Health Centre, east of Glasgow, Scotland. The three large-scale works are sited in the reception and entrance areas, and aim to encapsulate key aspects of Airdrie’s past in bold, abstract compositions that make reference to astronomy, blotting paper, baking and confectionery, linen weaving and ironwork foundries. Screen-printed and stencilled on linen, the imagery is applied in layers, gradually building up and stripping away colour.

‘Journeys’, Ormskirk Gallery, Lancashire

March 23, 2012

‘Journeys’ features the work of fifteen artists across a range of media, all exploring the role of the journey in its broadest sense.

In her current ongoing series, ‘Perpetual Mapping’, Joanna explores the idea of ‘plotted routes’ that link place and time. Examining ideas of boundaries, junctions and intersections, where one thing may start, end, or overlap another, these pieces aim to document the internal mapping of thoughts, as well as external paths taken.

Joanna will be showing two textile wall pieces and a work on paper, which aims to plot the creative process as it unfolds.

‘Journeys’ opens 24th March and runs until 5th May 2012.
