Joanna Langford

Back to all Artists
Born in Gisborne in 1978, Joanna Langford’s artwork utilises recycled or reused materials as a key thread of her process. She graduated from the University of Canterbury in 2004 with a Master of Fine Arts (Painting). In 2006 she received the Olivia Spencer Bower Fellow award and was the 2010 Frances Hodgkins Fellow, University of Otago. The artist has exhibited her work in numerous exhibitions. Solo exhibitions of Langford’s work include The Landless, Dunedin Public Art Gallery, Dunedin, 2009; The Beautiful and the Damned, Michael Hirschfeld Gallery, Wellington City Gallery, Wellington, 2008; Twilight Falls, Open window Series, Govett-Brewster Gallery, New Plymouth, 2008, and The Wanderers, Michael Lett Gallery, Auckland, 2005.

Langford is committed to using existing found or recycled materials, emphasising the lightness with which her work touches or impacts upon the physical environment in the most practical of ways – allowing the viewer to engage with her imaginative view.
