“Surfaces” is a new excursion into printmaking for the artist. Printmaking is a means Christian Joy uses in both her artistic and costume design practice but only rarely uses on two dimensional medium. In this show Christian will show a mix of prints on canvas created using heat press vinyl as well as traditional screen printing methods. The show will also contain cut out paper collage, a first step in Christian’s printmaking process as well as several three dimensional sculptures.
“In my work I want to give the feeling of crash landing on another planet. You awake confused, unable to read signs or decipher the sound of the language. But almost at once you begin to recognize colors, symbols and shapes. The planet feels less threatening and you are able to navigate your surroundings and begin to understand and feel comfort in your environment.”
