Ghost Gallery presents a solo exhibition featuring Seattle new media artist Joana Stillwell
NICE & GOOD
Opens Thursday, May 14th 6-9pm
On view through June 5th, 2015

Nice & Good is a solo exhibition of new and recent video work by Joana Stillwell. She uses humor, absurdity, or mystery as a way to balance and overcome the vulnerability and anxiety she experiences in downtime by
using found and everyday materials such as balloons and gum. She performs meditative examinations through exploring the physicality of these playful materials as they resist, surprise, and provoke her. While she approaches her subject matter autobiographically, she aims to address a breadth of personhood highlighting elements of growth, healing, and fulfillment.

She invites the viewer to partake in similar meditations and will have a series of "kits" available for purchase.

Joana Stillwell grew up around the Pacific Ocean in Hawaii, Japan, Guam, and Washington. She graduated with a BA in Art History and BFA in Photomedia from the University of Washington School of Art in 2012. She has shown throughout Seattle including with Interstitial, Gallery4Culture, SOIL, ArtsWest Gallery, and internationally at the NOW&AFTER Video Art
Festival. Joana is an active member of SOIL Art Gallery.
