Take a virtual tour of Joye's 2016 show at Wally Workman Gallery here.
Becky Joye’s work captures the imaginative curiosity of childhood and the universal desire for escape, thrill, and play as an adult. Structures of work are combined with geometric elements in playful colors and patterns, becoming lighthearted toys of play. Cyclones and ductwork found in factory yards assume human and animal characteristics and become whimsical imagined creatures in machine-sewn collages of colorful fabric and paper. Joye invites the viewer to pause and inhabit the magical moments of beauty and wonder found in the spaces of our imaginations.
