About Joyce’s work

Joyce ter Weele (1988) graduated from Academie Minerva in Groningen in 2015, and was awarded the “Coba de Groot” stipend that same year. Ter Weele’s work revolves around the adventure that is observation, and the (re)defining of familiar spaces and forms that is inherent to it. To this end, ter Weele produces drawings in which diverse materials and techniques are combined, including but not limited to charcoal, pencil, fineliner, graphite; collage, photography, printmaking and painting. The common denominator, the carrier, is mostly paper sometimes canvas.

Her starting principle rests in the figurative reality captured in her photos, which then serve as the starting point of abstract drawings. In doing so, Joyce makes her environment into her research grounds and her landscape of creativity. Architectural constructions in which humans are absent, in both modern as well as historical buildings, are her main source of inspiration.
