My Aim

My Medium

My Medium

Through the up-cycling of discarded materials I aim to highlight the needless waste in society; the price of vanity, of false promises in advertising, of the decline in community, and the subsequent effects on the environment and our psychological wellbeing.

My Medium

I am an animist; I harbour an obsession with junk. Image making is a pathway to my inner workings, and an ephemeral appreciation of the simple splendour I see in an oxidised piece of metal; weathered paper or broken wood. I can be inspired by anything, however I have been working consistently with oxidised metal for over a decade.

I grind, cut and augment my treasures, paint, collage or draw onto them to enhance the narrative that time originally created.

Bio

Joanne’s early artistic career started as a popular Sydney performance artist and poet. After attending The National Art School, she began to exhibit her quirky artworks.

Joanne has since obtained sort after artist residencies; been a finalist in several renowned art prizes; won second place in leading two sustainable art prizes; and been given an award in Tuscany, Italy. 

Her up-cycled works are sold privately in a Sydney gallery, and life drawings are marketed by a Sydney art consultancy. 

She now resides in the Northern Rivers where her works have been taken on by a number of galleries, and where she continues her work as an educator.
