Wynes’s work is recognized for its highly evolved style – combining bold, vibrant, stylized compositions with her own unique perspective. Her paintings are highly personalized, internalized images that have a deep connection to her life experiences. The images she creates are symbolic to events and interests that have shaped her life. As a quilter, she developed an avid interest in patterns, shapes, color combinations and designing these elements in a way that worked together in groups. Distilling the subject of each painting into its simplest elements, as one would in creating a quilt, she then [re]forms the images to provoke an emotional and creative response for both herself and the viewer.
Joyce Wynes has exhibited her acrylic paintings in numerous group and solo, juried shows in galleries and museums in New York, California, North Carolina and South Carolina. Her paintings have been included in museum juried shows in San Bernardino County Museum, San Bernardino, CA; Cayuga Museum of History and Art located in Auburn, NY; and Fayetteville Museum of Art, Fayetteville, NC She was the recipient of 1st place awards in juried shows to include WFAE’s Radiovision Juried Exhbition in Charlotte, NC and Cayuga Museum of History and Art’s 12 County Juried Show (in Auburn, NY).
