Joanne Boyle

Joanne Boyle is a visual artist and art educator working and living in Ireland. Boyle’s practice is studio-based and rooted in painting. Being materials led, Boyle’s paintings explore embodiment through the mimetic nature of substance, the stuff of paint. Boyle utilises hands-off techniques to play with loss of control, through procedure and chance.
