Joan Ainley

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.
