Joyce Blunk
I am intrigued by an object’s essence, its resonance, no matter how strange.
By changing the surface texture, color, sheen, and shape of ordinary items, and then by presenting them in spatial and conceptual relationships to one another and to other elements, I introduce miniature new worlds, something only distantly derived from the original elements.
Familiar objects are transformed by being presented in a formal and ceremonious way that alters the viewer’s way of seeing them.

Joyce Blunk lives in Asheville, North Carolina, USA.
