In Joanne Madeley’s solo exhibition in SNAP’s Community Gallery; she presents a series of prints that portrays the human thought process, which isn’t as orderly as commonly depicted with gears and cogs. In prints created as a result of Madeley’s recent residency in Lendava, Slovenia, she portrays thoughts through illustrated etchings of characters experiencing existential crisis. These individuals, whose thoughts are having the best of them, are depicted with their heads detached, hair being pulled out, and a variety of facial expressions; literal visuals for frustrated metaphors. Depicting thoughts is this way, Madeley illustrates how people become disconnected from their bodies and forget about reality and their physical needs.

Joanne completed her BFA in 2009, majoring in Printmaking at Concordia University in Montreal. She’s exhibited across Canada and currently resides in Edmonton.

Opening Reception: April 24, 7–9 pm.
