The inspiration for Joy''s work stems from her interest in capturing the aesthetic qualities of the human form. To this end, her current images combine a contrast between form and flux, tangible entitles engulfed in a constantly changing environment.
We are, therefore, presented with images that hint an eroticism and earthliness, whilst offering the reminder that all formations of being are transient.
Her technique involves the blending of her focal characters into merged backgrounds, abstracting the often dancing figures from their stage.
Washington Green have published the highly individual work of Joy Kirton-Smith for several years, and her truly artistic and decorative compositions have become incredibly popular.
