Emily Joy

Emily Joy is an award winning sculptor, ceramicist and installation artist, based at Stroud Valleys Artspace. Her practice is an investigation into the subjectivity, transience and loss inherent in the act of remembering and examines how we experience recall through the imperfect copy of memory, language and image.

Emily Joy was awarded the 2008 Darbyshire Award and was one of 12 artists in residence at the 2010 and 2012 Art and Culture Forum in Laubach, Germany. She is a founder member of the artist group Quercus.
Emily was shortlisted for the 2012 Aesthetica prize. Most recently she was artist in residence at the Galerie Im Palais, Lich, Germany.
