Joanna Rogers, fibre art and mixed media artworks

Joanna RogersJoanna Rogers

I have an Honours BA in Anthropology from Trent University and was involved in community radio, performance and theatre before becoming interested in visual arts. I created and exhibited collages for seven years before enrolling in the Textile Arts program at Capilano College in North Vancouver. I have been working as a fibre artist since graduating 1994.

My work has been shown in public and artist-run galleries across Canada and in the United States. It has also appeared in magazines such as Artichoke and Fiberarts.

My studies of Anthropology and Textile History have informed my art. Interestingly, the historical and cultural impact of fabric is to be found in the archaeological record, not in the realm of Art History.

This neatly links my two areas of study and brings added relevance to both.

I like to combine traditional surface design techniques, such as shibori and block printing, with non-traditional materials, such as bubble wrap, leaves and photographs. In this way I can create pieces which are both physically and metaphorically rich and textured.
