Joanne Teasdale began her career as a photorealist painter. She eventually moved into photography. Beginning in 2009 she began incorporating kiln formed glass into her work, which is fascinating. Her productions incorporate images of objects like chairs, dresses, rooms, and little girls. She is interested in exploring the traces that we leave behind, evidence of our existence.
Teasdale uses light to create a ghostly quality, emphasizing the residual left behind by the owners of the objects she photographs. On the kiln formed glass she uses fusible film to lend a transparency to the work.
