JOANIE SAN CHIRICO

Joanie San Chirico's work is unique in that it incorporates painting on canvas, photography, or stitching on textiles in such a way that challenges the viewer to decipher how the work was made. All her work depicts a balance of art and nature, combining these media to portray natural surfaces using imagery of the planet's fragile beauty. Her work also reflects on the past in an attempt to make sense of the future by utilizing the incongruity of hand stitching (traditional mark making) with the latest technology on silk, canvas and other textiles (modern mark making). San Chirico works closely with architects, designers and developers and does many commission pieces.
