Joyce Moseley

“That’s a meatball. That’s a cat. That’s a man with a sword. I make paintings about church and my life. My family.” – JM

 

Joyce Moseley’s work explores unique imagery from her day-to-day life – churches, quilts, and plates of food are recurring themes that appear in different configurations. Recently Joyce has developed an interest in calligraphy ink and pen, which has given her drawn line a dynamic new variation in flow and line weight. She draws inspiration from art history books as well as her family and friends. This exhibition of drawings and paintings features portraits of people and animals, as well as semi-narrative interior scenes.

 

Joyce was born January 29th, 1954, in Philadelphia, PA, where she continues to live with her family. She began making artwork about six years ago at Oasis, an art studio in Philadelphia. For the past two years she has worked at the Center for Creative Works. Aside from her 2D work, Joyce creates unique portraits of seated figures in wood. Her daughter, Lillian, is also an artist at CCW.
