Artist's Statement

Joyce’s practice utilises unconventional materials to create unique contemporary works, using ceramic pigments, clay, cement, paint, print and installation. She explores colour, scale, and surface, aiming to converge histories and a sense of place. The work is concerned with identity, secret codes and temporary existence.

Joyce has exhibited both locally and nationally in group and solo shows.

 

"What’s passion but a battering of stubborn stalks,
Then a gentle combing out of fibres like hair
And a weaving of these into christening robes,
Into garments for marriage or funeral?
Let flax be our matchmaker, our undertaker."
