"[This is] the one life we know we have. I can't be complacent about the world I live in. It's important to me to use art in a manner that incites people to look and then carry something home - even it it's subliminal - that might make a change in them. Art can be a life force. That's why so many people in other cultures integrate it into everyday use. I know I've got an itch. I guess I just want to keep making work that confounds me. I want to be confused, ignited, knocked down by my own work. I believe in messing with stereotypes, prodding the viewer to reassess."

Joyce J. Scott

"Fearless, a force to be reckoned with, and as beautiful inside as out, Joyce J. Scott touches the soul and conscience of the viewer with her powerful imagery. A legend in Baltimore, Joyce is an historian, printmaker, weaver, sculptor, performance artist, vocalist and educator. She is perhaps best known for her work in jewelry, beadwork, and glass. Combining a heterogeneous mix of media (glass beads, African sculptures and masks, found objects), she creates powerful sculptural commentaries, rich in color, texture, popular culture, pathos and her own ancestry."
