Artwork Statement

Joanna Wilkinson, Bluebottle, Sunshine Coast.


Can one understand beauty without understanding pain? Washed up bluebottles, gleaming like jewels in the morning light. The fear of stepping on an electric blue tentacle hidden in the sand. Always pushing boundaries, Joanna brings a spectrum of libertine energy to paint the light we cannot see.

Mentored by the late Albert Irvin RA, he reinforced her confidence in colour. She has produced a body of work representing her desire to capture all that matters.
