Joanna Gambotto completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the National Art School in Darlinghurst in 2013 and is currently based in Sydney. She is the winner of 2016 Northbridge Art Prize and 2013 Hornsby Art Prize. She is also the recipient of the Saatchi and Saatchi Art Award 2014.
Joanna’s paintings aim to evoke a subjective account of a place rather than to render an accurate copy of one. In her work, distortion and exaggeration become means of re-enacting the personal impression and enable the work to break away from the formal constraints of representational painting.
Joanna has participated in numerous group exhibitions and has held several solo shows in Australia and abroad. Her previous work can be found in private and public collections worldwide.
