Known for her weavings and sculptures, American-born artist Joana Gosly began when she was quite young, studying weaving techniques with Esther Warner Dendel. In Dendel’s studio she participated in a workshop given by Josep Grau-Garriga. Two years later she was one of Grau-Garriga’s collaborator in his studio in Barcelona. Presently she lives in Madrid, where she has been developing her artistic activity, further experimenting with different materials such as sheet metal, learning patinas and afterward mixing them with silks, nylon and brass.
What we love about Joana
Her work and even their titles are inspired by architecture, astronomy and ethereal places. Silk, brass, copper, oxidized metals all intertwined on an otherworldly plane. Pliable metals so intricately woven they appear suspended, if not floating, in entrancing sculptures like “Prisma”. Opposing materials undulating between structured threads materialize harmoniously in earthy hues in “Columpio. “Aqualung” takes our breath away. Be spun into awe by Joana’s tri-dimensional artistry.
