About

Joelle Dietrick at MOCA Jacksonville

Joelle Dietrick develops two-dimensional and time-based artworks that consider contemporary nomadism and 21st century power structures. With a particular interest in female expatriates, she considers how these adventurous women negotiate their wanderlust with a desire for a home while in competition for boundaryless careers. She completed a BFA in Painting at Penn State (1996) and an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of California, San Diego (2006). She was born in Pennsylvania and teaches at Davidson College outside of Charlotte, North Carolina.
