Visiting Artist Demonstration: Joanna Powell
9am-12pm, 1-4pm both days
Sponsored by: The Alfred Clay Collective
The Alfred Clay Collective welcomes spring visiting artist Joanna Powell.
My current work focuses on the question of beauty. What I find beautiful tends to be awkward and irregular and at times the opposite of what is considered the social norm of beauty. This challenge of beauty comes from growing up in a culture where my identity of what it is to be a woman has been shaped by a male lens. My work allows me a place of asylum, a fictional culture where everything and everyone is ok to exist. Through the arrangement of objects I set up a situation or narrative where the viewer can forget about an objects function and call attention to its possibilities as pure matter with its own intentions. I want to encourage questions about what is happening with the objects and the narrative being peculiar and unclear welcomes this conversation. The paintings and objects have become married into installations, re-contextualizing them to function as three-dimensional paintings. My work lives in this twilight zone between painting and sculpture. I am continually searching for this sensation of something coming into focus. The objects I create are colloquialisms of my own making that reference ancient and current civilization. I believe an object can anchor the values of a culture acting as an artifact of its time. I question beauty with the artifacts I create.
