Halifax-based mixed-media artist Joyce Glasner exhibits a series of painting and collage based works in her exhibition Re/Visions, on view in the corridor gallery June 3 – 30, 2015.
Discussing her investigations into narrative using found objects and layering ephemera, Glasner describes her practice:
The interplay between history, memory and identity is a dominant theme in my mixed- media paintings and collage. Many of my works are narrative based; therefore text often plays a role, either as a design element or as a component of the narrative. I’m inspired by found objects and ephemera, particularly items with an aged patina, such as vintage photographs and maps, bleached bones, rusted metal, and stained, faded and frayed fabrics and documents. Imbued with a history of their own, these items add yet another layer to the story.
Joyce Glasner is a Halifax-based mixed-media artist, writer and photographer. She holds a diploma in fine craft from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, and a B.A. from Saint Mary’s University. Her artwork and photography has appeared in Still Point Arts Quarterly, Canadian Geographic and Harrowsmith Country Life.
