Joan Konkel
Joan Konkel was raised in California in San Joaquin Valley and Napa. She holds a B.A. in Fine Arts from San Francisco College for Women and an M.F.A. in Sculpture from George Washington University in Washington, DC. She lived briefly in Aix-en Provence, France and Santiago, Chile before settling in Washington, DC where she currently resides. "My work unchains color and allows it to cross dimensions. It aims to create a unique realm where light, color and space interact with metal and layered mesh to form a visual labyrinth. This is an amorphous dimension, where depth perception deceives, where metal seems ethereal and soft, and where layers of color combine, or fracture. It is a place where forces are in opposition, the absorption of light versus the reflection and refraction of light, a place that whispers of mysteries both physical and spiritual." - Joan Konkel Her works are held in numerous private and corporate collections in the United States, Europe, and Japan. She was awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Annie Albers Designer Award. Her work has been displayed in the ART in Embassies Program at the residences of Ambassador to UNESCO, David Killion, in Paris, France, and Ambassador to Albania, Marcie B. Ries.
