Jocelyn Foye
Jocelyn Foye is a former studio artist and frequent collaborator of Angels Gate. Her work stems from an understanding of this scientific practice of observing and co llecting. Currently\, She is trying to capture and illustrate how the reocc urrence of every day processes derived from labor produces a fundamental vi sual pattern. Using the principles of design and an almost cultural studies approach\, aesthetic beauty becomes one of desired outcomes for this work. Foye received her BA from Trinity College in Hartford Connecticut and MFA from CSU\, Long Beach\, California. She has shown throughout the United Sta tes and Europe and has a performance exhibition scheduled at the Torrance A rt Museum\, Los Angeles Municipal Gallery at Barnstall\, and Real Art Ways in Hartford CT.
