Joyce Majiski’s work examines her connection to place, particularly wilderness and northern landscapes, usually within a context of global environmental concerns. Her past careers as a biologist and wilderness guide in the Yukon have augmented and contributed to her diverse artistic practice. Majisiki is particularly known for her monoprints which she utilizes in large scale installations and as source material for animation, artists books and sculpture.
Majiski’s work consists of a series of layers, dense with technique, colour and information. Reflecting the interrelationships found within nature, her work reveals how intangible concepts such as instinctive knowledge and connection to place can be transferred into visual imagery. Her work comments on global changes in climate and socio-economic structures and its effect on the environment, animals and cultures of the circumpolar north.
