Joy Curtis’ work uses an array of history-laden materials to creates visual fables. Her practice involves extensive research from the origins of commercial fabrics and dyes, to minerology to architecture. She layers and juxtaposes cloth with brass, hand dyed fabrics rusted with oxidized metals, wax and bronze. Her works describe a rich inner world, one which can be deciphered through its material references, but not fully understood.View CV
