JOYCE BILLET
 

Joyce Billet is a visual artist that merges her forward-looking technical expertise with conceptual ideas. Her background in architecture has influence on her work which plays with materials and scale to mix the sensations of painting and sculpture. She explores the tensions and relationships, between the natural and the artificial, between the unique and the mass produced, between tradition and progress. Her studio is located in Miami, at Fountainhead Studios.  She has been selected to participate in group shows by curators such as Maurizio Pellegrin, Heather Darcy Bhandari, Margaret Carrigan (The Art Newspaper), Nic Brierre Aziz (from New Orleans Museum of Art), Grela Orihuela ( VP,Design Miami) and talks/ Podcasts with FIU. Her project “Rising” a sculptural seati􀀁ng installati􀀁on, was selected for Un􀀁tled Art fair (2021) as part of the Special Project Program curated by Omar Lopez Chahoud.


Billet graduated with a Bachelor’s in Architecture from Pratt Institute and in 2010 she received a Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University. She worked at firms such as Norman Foster in London and Studio Daniel Libeskind in New York, her last role was as Director of Store Design at CHANEL.
