Joyce Fontanilla

Settling, Listening, Growing

The collection is inspired by the abstractions, hard-edged patterns and undulating lines characterized in Anni Albers’ work at Bauhaus. Incorporating play and experimentation within the limitations of minimal shapes and lines. The work aims to build up patterns and complexity as a means of creating geometric harmony.

Joyce Fontanilla is a multidisciplinary artist. Born in La Union Province of the Philippines. Raised in San Diego, California and currently based in Brooklyn, she plays with various mediums, primarily textiles, to navigate and explore stories, biographies and identities. Textiles have an integral role in her work as it holds a personal connection to her heritage. Her work and growing practice stem from curiosity, intuition and the need for constant progress.
