Guest Artist: Hannah Joynt
Hannah Joynt is a contemporary visual artist who works in a range of media, processes, and scales. From digital illustration to oil painting, pastel drawing to laser cutting her practice is often informed by our ever-changing relationship with landscape and the natural world. Her 2017 MFA project was concerned with researching notions of "drawing as a language" with specific application to drawing the landscape.
As a solo practitioner she exhibits both nationally and internationally but also in a collaborative artist duo with multimedia artist and musician Dr Jane Venis. Their collaboration includes live performances of drawing and music created in dual improvisation and performance art video works under the collective name Small Measures. In 2019 they undertook the Buinho Creative Art residency in Portugal and recent solo shows include: Drawn to Sound at Ashburton Art Gallery in 2019, Dual at CICA (Czong Institute of Contemporary Art) Museum in Seoul, South Korea in 2020 and in June 2021 their five-minute film Flag Plant was recently screen as a part of the Bomb Factory Artist Film Festival in London.
Hannah is also a senior lecturer in the College of Creative Practice and Enterprise at Otago Polytechnic where she has taught visual art for the past 14 years.
