Joanne Dorothea-Smith

<p>Joanne Dorothea-Smith is a conceptual artist with a unique blend of autism and synesthesia, enriching her work in photography, sound, moving image, writing, and printmaking. Her art serves as an interpretation of place and person, capturing different connecting points in time. Joanne's work delves into perceptions of space and time in relation to the human body. She primarily focuses on landscapes, using photography, historical data, and scientific research to explore these spaces. Her work also incorporates embodied practices of writing and exploration.</p> <p>Joanne is a co-director of CAMP and part of the Frequencies photographic collective. Her art has been showcased in various exhibitions, including at the University of Plymouth, Bath Artists' Studios, Redruth's Back Lane West, Peninsula Arts, and in Berlin for the Climate Art Collection. She has received honourable mentions from the International Photography Awards (IPA) in 2014 and 2016 and has been represented by Millennium Images since 2014. Her work "Reality Thins" won the 2018 art film category in Cinewomen, and her prints are available at the Saatchi Gallery.<br /></p> <p>Her practice is an amalgamation of experience and memory, reflecting on societal issues, family dynamics, politics, and the environment. Joanne uses these narratives to reshape her descriptions and experiences of reality, making her work a compelling blend of the real and the imagined.</p> <p>She currently lectures on BA (Hons) Fine Art.</p>
