Inspired by the Art of daily life, the work of Joy French portraits portrays the poignant and the personal with a stirring alacrity.
Stunning in their detail, these mesmerising portraits are character driven more than anything else.
With her training and experience as a sculptor, the artist can create alluring portrayals of people that are thrillingly three-dimensional and breathtakingly and true to life.
Fascinated by the people she meets every day, French imbues her portraits with electric colours and expressively abstract flourishes of black and whites.
Vivacious and animated, they are dazzlingly true to reality in appearance and feeling. In these works, French touches on the essence of humanity in all its forms.
“Meeting people, hearing their life experiences and learning from them is what inspires my art,” explains French.
