‘Botanical Restoration’ Joanne fitzpatrick graduated from the Belfast school of Art in 2000 with a BA Hons Degree in Combined Studies in Art and Design - she specialises in Printmaking, Painting and Photography. She completed a PGCE in Art and Design at John Moore’s University in Liverpool and is currently Head of Art and Digital Arts at Hazelwood Integrated College in North Belfast. Joanne is a relatively new artist member at Seacourt and she has experimented on a range of printing techniques and processes. Her current exhibition in our Member’s Gallery ‘Botanical Restoration’ predominantly reflects the changes that have occurred in the Tropical Ravine in The Botanic Gardens, Belfast. Joanne documents the light, space and texture, spontaneously recording the changes that unfold in the architecture and plants during this observance of the passing of time. Mark making is prevalent throughout her work and she enjoys infusing and overlapping line. Joanne uses loose vibrant brush strokes in her Cyanotypes to enhance depth and to emulate the subtle complexity of the natural forms. Her aim is to provide an expressive painterly flow throughout her printmaking. Booking for this event has now closed.
