Joy Nagy (2010)

joy-nagy copy“My work is an inquiry into the architecture and mechanics of nature. I think this is my way of looking into the randomness of nature’s patterns, and the notion there might be order in a world that feels chaotic. I recognize the fragility of our earth’s ecosystem and our own life cycle. I continue with each piece I create to ask questions and to transmit the information to my viewers in new, inspiring ways.”

Joy Nagy is a photographer, drawer, painter, sculptor and installation artist. Her work focuses on “botanical underdogs” ever since she fell in love with the burdock weed in 2003. She uses an environment’s history and botanical reference as an influence to properly document her work. She has studied at the School of Visual Arts, the New York Studio School, and the Arts Students League. She is currently residing in NYC, NY.
