Joyce Polance’s oil paintings consist of expressionist portraits and landscapes which explore the chaotic inner worlds of their subjects—as depiction of both the subjects' own vulnerabilites and of their connections to our tumultuous political climate. Polance has exhibited internationally and is the recipient of multiple grants and awards including six Chicago CAAP grants, a George Sugarman Foundation grant, two Judith Dawn Memorial grants, and a fellowship at Spertus Institute in Chicago. Her paintings are held internationally in private and corporate collections. Polance was born in New York City in 1965. She attended Wesleyan University and received a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology. She lives and works in Catskill, New York.
