Hello

Joyce Treasure is a mixed media artist living in Birmingham…

Joyce Treasure is a mixed media artist, writer, filmmaker and street artist living in Birmingham.

She works in layers and body forms to slice cultural and iconic imagery together using collage, print and acrylic. Treasure is interested in exploring new narratives regarding identity and social settings on a contemporary landscape, making enquiries into our visual historic backdrops; the examined and unexamined, the seen and the unseen. She tries to increase the spirit between author and audience by investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. Her work uses symbols of power, travel and finance to represent hierarchy, imperialism and colonialism, sometimes by appropriating images found and of the queen. Within this she also looks at how this affects her own identity as a mixed race woman in a patriarchic setting.

Joyce embarked on a journey between 1st March 2016 to 4th July 2016 that took her through parts of the Middle Passage, visiting Jamaica, Haiti, New York, Senegal, Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria.

Joyce will further investigate the topic of Black Identity by commencing a Black Studies course at Birmingham City University in September 2017 to further develop her artwork, philosophy and profession.
