Join curio. in celebrating the opening of local artist Joanna Davis’ exhibition Pathways & Formations with our extended hours 5:00-8:00pm.
Bringing together multiple bodies of work, spanning very recent and the inevitably lengthening past, artist Joanna Davis shows us how she carries a thread of connection in one hand and a brush in the other.
Natural wonders of the mind rise from landscapes in watercolor while collages act as hand drawn maps and ciphers to emotional destinations. Each piece is a part of a collective sojourn that individually we are familiar with, if we take the time to recognize it in ourselves.
Creating anything with our hands takes time, a variable degree of intention, and focus. When we allow ourselves the time to slow the passing of our days and call back the events that make them, we relive them, for better or worse. When Joanna mines these events she finds pockets of creative crystals. Much like the mineral, they are resilient even if sometimes fragmented, formed in irregular shapes- dictated by the pressure of their surroundings, and endlessly intriguing.
