Miriam Joan Montgomery
Mimi Joan is an artist & designer based in the inner west of Sydney. A graduate from COFA, UNSW, her practice is inspired by minimalism, using pencil, graphite, and pen to create line based portraits of androgynous and peculiar faces. An underlying awkwardness permeates the faces of the unknown characters: their eyes illuminating the social anxiety and idiosyncrasies that can be revealed when meeting another’s gaze.
"My work often depicts strange figures floating and detached from their environments. Taking inspiration from the many anonymous faces of the city, full of unknown emotion and thoughts. These figures adrift in space aim to provoke a sense of the fleeting nature of dreams and memories, creating a sense of mystery, uncertainty and isolation."
