Joanna Jones

About

Joanna Jones’s practice over several decades has included painting and performance. Interested in the inter-connectedness of things, thoughts and encounters she has developed a performative process in painting that positions her body as an agency of a particular kind of knowing and takes painting into the territory of an event.

The British artist Joanna Jones lives and works in Dover (UK). Following a foundation year at Northwich College of Art, she continued her studies in London at the Byam Shaw School. Jones received her National Diploma of Design in painting from Goldsmith`s College, and graduated from the Royal Academy Schools in 1970. Joanna Jones is a recipient of several art awards including the first prize in the Greater London Councils painting competition (1969), a scholarship from Künstlerhaus Balmoral in 2000 and an Arts Council England Year of the Artist award for a work at Samphire Hoe in 2001.

Her work has been shown in many international art institutions and galleries s.a.: Arts Council England (UK); Royal Academy, London (UK); Wrexham Arts Centre, North Wales (UK); The City Gallery of Leicester, Leicester (UK); Leicester City Museum, Leicester (UK); National Gallery of Canada, Montreal (CDN); Taipeh Gallery, New York (US); Künstlerhaus Balmoral, Bad Ems (D); London Biennale 2004, London (UK); Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt, curated by Peter Wairmeir/Ingrid Mössinger, (D); Stadtmuseum Bad Ems, Bad Ems (D); Museum Mühlheim, Mühlheim (D); Offenes Kulturhaus, Linz, curated by Sigrid Schade, (A); Pharos Center for Contemporary Art, Nicosia (CY); Pharos Trust, Melina Mercouri Cultural Center, Nicosia (CY); Karmeliterkloster, Frankfurt (D); Städtische Galerie, Bad Soden (D); Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin (D); Space Gallery Folkstone, Folkstone (UK); Galerie Kyra Maralt, Berlin (D); Galerie Wild, Frankfurt (D); Galerie Klaus Werth, Frankfurt (D);
