Meet Joanna Blémont, our latest artist in residence – pictured here in our little residency studio in the Drill Hall, where she’s been working for the past two months.
Artist Joanna Blémont dreams up uncanny atmospheres through natural forms and fragments of built environment. Drawing from her own personal dreams and early visual research in psychology, Joanna creates mirrored associations within her work to create enigmatic dreamscapes that are open to interpretation. Within her partially figurative scenes, details pointing to a specific time or place are subtracted and the image is shared through a collective lens. The mysterious, ambiguous tone of her work immerses the viewer in the language of dreams.
Primarily working in ink and watercolour paints, Joanna has translated her work into riso prints that retain the texture and colour of her original artwork.
You might recognise Joanna’s work from Goggle Travel, a zine she produced with us earlier this year.
Brand new work from the exhibition is now available to purchase in person from our studio and online on our web shop.
Thursday 29th September, 6-8pm
at Out of the Blue Drill Hall
Until 29th October
