"Joanna Strong: flourish"
2000-04-29 until 2000-05-27
Cambridge Galleries
Preston, ON, CA Canada

Joanna Strong s paintings of plants and flowers are responses to their colours, shapes and symbolic qualities. They fascinate the artist not only for their form, but in following the process of blooming, wilting and decay, they also become for Strong metaphors for the human life cycle. Her still life paintings are quite pared down and simple, having the hallmark of a style or a personal vision that transforms whatever she paints, however mundane, into something as seen for the very first time.

Newfoundland native Joanna Strong studied at York University in Toronto and Memorial University in St. Johnís, before going to the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design to concentrate on studio work. After graduating from NSCAD in 1992 with a major in painting, Strong moved back to Newfoundland where she continued to paint, and where she also worked at St. Michaelís Printshop. In 1994, Strong returned to Ontario to study at the University of Waterloo, and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in 1996. She now lives and paints in Toronto.

Joanna Strongís work has been featured in the Cambridge Galleries last two Open Juried Exhibitions. She is represented by the Christina Parker Gallery, St. Johns, Newfoundland where a series of paintings made at Signal Hill National Park, St. Johns, can currently be seen. She is represented in Toronto by Art Interiors, and in Waterloo by the Eldon Gallery.
