Joanne Hall’s practice focuses on the interrelationship between humanity and the natural world, ranging from local and environmental scales, to considerations about the wider Universe. Influenced by philosophical and scientific thought, research-led investigations often form a core basis for her work. Through investigations into the act of looking, as well as the ever-shifting nature of our perceptions, she creates work that focuses on uncertainty, and the process of discovery. With a particular emphasis on geological phenomena and movements, her work investigates the relationships between materiality and force.
Joanne’s practice is a multidisciplinary one, incorporating sculpture, photography, and printmaking. Materials play an important role in her working process, and through experimentation with material combinations, she is in a consistent process of investigating the space between knowing and being, where the physical world meets our interpretation of it.
Born in Ireland, Joanne moved to Scotland in 2014 where she studied Fine Art at DJCAD, University of Dundee, achieving her BA(Hons) degree in 2017, and continuing on to achieve an MFA in Art and Humanities in 2018. She currently lives and works in West Yorkshire.
