Laura Joy

Visiting Tutor

1995: BA Fine Art / Art History Camberwell College of Art

2004: MA Fine Art Printmaking (Distinction) Winchester School of Art

2014: DTLLS / CTLLS Diploma and Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector, City and Guilds, Bournemouth & Poole College

Laura’s practice encompasses printmaking, film and artist’s books. The starting point of her work is often a found object or image, which she explores using collage, drawing or photographic techniques and develops through a variety of printmaking processes, such as etching, photo-litho and screenprinting.

An interest in why we collect and classify objects and how we decide whether they are precious or significant informs her work, as well as seeking connections between the intimate and the immense. Inspired by the cut-up techniques and fanzines of the Dada and punk movements, often made with nothing more than a photocopier and whatever is at hand, Laura often combines disparate fragments of material to explore the idea that:

“…things which happen to be soiled, imperfect, broken or nondescript can still be treasured as vehicles of insight, reminding us of our lapsed affinity with matter”

(R. Cardinal: ‘The Case of Kurt Schwitters’, cited in ‘The Cultures of Collecting’, Ed Elsner and Cardinal, 1994).

Since 2009 Laura has worked with unwanted books and has facilitated an annual ‘Altered Books’ project in Bournemouth Central Library with AUB students and members of the public who transform the books into all manner of objects and interpretations.

Laura works mainly with printmaking and artists books, alongside teaching and delivering arts education programmes in diverse contexts including the National Trust, the British Library, Arts University Bournemouth and Bournemouth and Poole College. An example of her artist residency at Southampton University Special Collections can be seen here.
