Emily Joyce

Emily Joyce was born in 1976 and educated at the Glasgow School of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA 1998). Joyce’s paintings investigate mathematics and its resonance in the natural world as well as art history through pattern based and rhythmic abstraction. Her paintings often have a spark humor and playfulness because she adds a purposefully awkward gesture or anomaly to the composition that humanizes the rigorous geometry that is the foundation of her work. Joyce has exhibited work and participated in projects at Human Resources (Los Angeles), Machine Project (Los Angeles), Hauser and Wirth (Los Angeles), Inman Gallery (Houston), The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (Berkeley), The Tang Teaching Museum (Saratoga Springs), and the Palais de Tokyo (Paris) and more. This winter her work will be included in the exhibition Aftereffect: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Painting at the MCA Denver. Her book of poetry “A Cigar Caught In The Lilies” will be published by Hesse Press (Los Angeles) in April of 2019.
