About Joanna Mallin-Davies

Joanna is welsh-born, but has lived and worked in many places in the world, including Asia. Most recently, she lived and worked for some years on the edge of a fjord in North Denmark, before moving to Firenze, where she currently lives. Her work is touched by the influences of all these diverse cultures. Joanna"s education is in ceramics, a training that instilled in her a belief in "truth to material". Thus, when she developed her work into bronze, she apprenticed with a bronze caster and subsequently worked in a fine art foundry for several years. Now, after almost 20 years of making sculpture, Joanna is returning to the source; immersing herself in the Art of the "masters", in the museums of Paris and Firenze, and working with Italian artisan foundries; where the "lost wax" method of bronze-casting that is used throughout the world today was first developed.

Joanna Mallin-Davies

Artist Statement of Joanna Mallin-Davies

Although at its source Joanna`s work is fundamentally classical, it carries the influence of ancient Chinese and Japanese art, Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist symbolism and philosophies, from her having lived in Asia for some years.

Whatever the subject, it is essentially concerned with the inner experience; emotions, spirituality, consciousness and inner being.

Simple, sensual curves and inflated weightlessness, are the essence of female form and presence.

Whether in a state of rapture or serenity, the women she create have an innate self-possession, an inner smile, as if finding a beautiful, abundant garden. They share an inner contentment, living in pleasure with themselves and their surroundings. It is their pleasure.

Joanna carries this feeling of purist simplicity and strength into the form of the piece. Smooth simple lines and curves accentuated by only slight details of expression in face and hands, the feeling of peace and balance resonating throughout.

Few subjects have had such strong symbolic significance to man, as the horse, and few images other than the nude have been so frequently observed in Art. With the horse and rider; whether male or female, real or mythological, Joanna has found the perfect vehicle, with which to communicate different facets of humanity and our relationship to the world, emotions and ourselves. Femaleness spirituality, consciousness, and sensuality are a continuing fascination for Joanna, giving her ever growing insights of the `inner` experience. She avoid laboured titles, preferring people to see her work un-hindered by her personal "philosophy".
