Joanna Kidney is an Irish visual artist. Her practice is a practice of sense making, a web of interrelated ideas around how complex and tiny our lives are within the vast universe. It is an enquiry of the non-material, that which is not visible and concrete. Concerned with the holistic, temporal and interconnected aspects of being human, the work offers open, poetic prompts towards these ideas. Using a language of abstraction, her work is an enquiry of the mark and the line through drawing, painting and physical space.
She has taught in Ireland, The Netherlands and the USA. She is an annual presenter and tutor at the International Encaustic Conference, USA. Her Encaustic Painting Workshops are supported by R&F Handmade Paints, USA.
