Joy Garnett's paintings are visceral investigations of scientific, documentary and journalistic photographs. She searches for source material online, in newspapers and on television; eventually it is the nature of a given kind of source material that will define a distinct project or series. Taken as a whole, the paintings invoke our complex relationship with mass media images, and our assumptions about their veracity and meaning...

Garnett studied at L'Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris and received her MFA from The City College of New York. Her paintings are exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad, and have been reproduced in numerous publications including Harper's, Perspecta, and Cabinet Magazine. She is a 2004 recipient of a grant from the Anonymous Was a Woman foundation, and currently serves as Arts Editor at Cultural Politics, an internationally refereed journal published by Berg, Oxford, UK.
