Fragments

Joan Ainley
Nov 11 – Dec 10

The work of the artist Joan Ainley includes installations, editions, multiples and unique pieces that are exemplified by their capacity for multi-layered readings. The use of camouflage not to conceal but as an agent to focus attention is a characteristic of her approach. Making connections and linking the past, present and future are central to her concerns. Leitmotifs include peace, pilgrimage, recollection and memory, public and personal.

Her works are exhibited widely nationally and internationally and are in public and private collections including The Hyman Kreitman Archive Tate Britain, The British Art Library V&A, and The Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris.
