translates, distorts, and reproduces patterns drawn from domestic objects. Scanlon employs papermaking and collage techniques to create paintings that both resist and submit to an underlying, grid-based composition. The paintings are torn between harmony and chaos—from afar, they read as unified and controlled. Upon approach, the contrasts in their units assert themselves. On the painting plane, contradiction can be aestheticized to the point of eliciting pleasure, integrating conflict without sacrificing discord.

Joy Scanlon (b. 1992, Glen Cove, NY) received her BFA in painting from Hunter College, CUNY, where she was a three-time awardee of the Kossak Painting Fellowship. She is a painter, maker, and arts educator. Joy’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States, notably in New York City and Austin. She explores issues of pattern, repetition, everyday abstraction, and craft through a variety of mediums, including painting and papermaking.
