Joanna Kinnersly-Taylor, of Glasgow, Scotland, is one of the few international artists featured in The Current’s collection. Joanna works with natural fibers such as linens and wool, and uses many techniques to dye, screen print, paint, or manipulate the fabric. Joanna has spent over 20 years perfecting her craft; she’s written a successful book on screen printing and dyeing techniques, regularly teaches a variety of classes, and is a guest lecturer at degree level. Her work Resonance is one of many in her portfolio focused on memory and process. Joanna uses layering, repetition, and abstraction of recognizable forms to create a hazy yet somehow familiar setting. Even the title, meaning deep and reverberating, echoes the process of creating this work.
