Dr Johanna Love
Johanna Love is Subject Leader MA Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts, and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Printmaking at The University of Brighton. Her fine art practice spans across photography, print, drawing and video to explore notions of disappearance and visual emptiness. She is interested in images that generate visual paradoxes, most often using landscape images, to evoke readings of loss and the unknown, whilst simultaneously provoking perceptual imagination.
She has recently completed a practice based PhD at Chelsea College of Art & Design titled Dust: New contemporary modes of viewing the printed photographic image. Her research examines the ways in which the presence and reading of dust within the photographic image opens up new avenues for artistic thought. She exhibits widely both nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include Behind the eyes: making pictures, Gallery North, Newcastle; Viewfinder, Artspaceh Gallery, Seoul, Korea; British Printmaking Japan, Kyoto Museum & Art Gallery, Japan; Scope: New Photographic Practices, Tsinghua University, Beijing.
