Joanne Masding is interested in the ways in which we perceive and experience objects, particularly within an increasingly digital and immaterial world that is saturated with images and information.
She works across a wide range of media, including traditional sculptural materials such as plaster and clay, combined with more contemporary media and processes including digital animation, holographic vinyl and computer screen filters.
Her interest in museum collections extends to the ways in which they are mediated through display strategies and through reproduction in different contexts, raising questions about value, content and authenticity.
Display technologies such as LCD screens and TV monitors become an essential sculptural component rather than a peripheral mode of communication and in contrast, the artist also reveals evidence of creation by hand.
Joanne will be creating new works for her solo show in Walsall. www.joannemasding.com
