Johanna Norry is an artist and fiber sculptor living in Atlanta, Georgia. She explores metaphysical ideas and their metaphorical relationship with the physical realities of a body’s openings and closings and confronts seeing the bodies of animals and humans differently. Employing traditional techniques of weaving, handknitting, coiling, embroidery and stitching, her work often combines comforting materials with discomforting images and ideas.
She received her BFA in Textiles from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA in 2015, and her BA in Anthropology and Writing at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, and is currently pursuing her MFA in Fabric Design at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia in Athens, GA. Her work has been featured in a number of juried exhibitions in Atlanta and Athens, GA, as well as in group shows in New Mexico and New York.
