London-Wul Fibre Arts is pleased to host the fibre-based works of Moncton native Joanna Close. The exhibit features a series of panels that explore geography and landscape.

Close is an artist living in Ammon, New Brunswick. She defines her work in the context of fine art, using fabric and thread to illustrate her ideas.

She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Textiles in 2004 at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She earned her Master of Arts in Textile and Fibre Art in the United Kingdom in 2006.

Close's work has involved landscape images through hand-dyed and woven blankets and hangings. Most recently, her work has taken a more conceptual turn, still looking at landscapes and geography, but in a more critical way. Through this research, she defines her identity as a Canadian. Her work considers the proximity of the urban environment to the rural environment as a defining factor in Canadian culture, as well as the rural community's sense of intuition and literacy for the land.
