Joy G portrait.jpg

Deep Dish is an exploration of landscape and urbanscape using the medium of digital collage. Pulling from an array of sources, including licks from my paintings, sections cropped from my street photography, and screen grabs of global conflicts found online, I play with many layers to create enigmatic works that are at once complex and immediate.”

Joy Garnett studied painting at L’École des beaux-arts in Paris and completed her MFA at the City College of New York. Translating found imagery of man-made and natural disasters, machine visions and surveilled but forgotten spaces, Garnett makes connections between direct experience and ubiquitous media narratives that operate beyond our control. Her paintings embody transformations in the landscape, serving as metaphors for interior as well as exterior disruptions and the conflicts that take place on the picture plane itself. Joy’s paintings have been shown at the Milwaukee Art Museum; MoMA-PS1, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The James Gallery at CUNY Graduate Center, The FLAG Art Foundation (all in New York); Boston University Art Gallery; Museum of Contemporary Craft Portland; BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Newcastle-upon-Tyne); and the Witte Zaal (Ghent, Belgium). Catalogue essays by Lucy Lippard, Benjamin Godsill and Tim Griffin have accompanied her exhibitions. Her work has been reviewed in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Art in America, ARTnews, TimeOut, The Brooklyn Rail, Artnet, Artforum, The Huffington Post, Hyperallergic, and elsewhere. She has received grants from Anonymous Was a Woman, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Wellcome Trust, and The Chipstone Foundation. Joy’s work is in the permanent collections of the National Academy of Sciences (Washington, D.C.), Altria, and The West Collection (Oaks, PA). She lives and works between Brooklyn and Long Island City, NY.
