« [This is] the one life we know we have. I can’t be complacent about the world I live in. It’s important to me to use art in a manner that incites people to look and then carry something home – even it it’s subliminal – that might make a change in them. Art can be a life force. That’s why so many people in other cultures integrate it into everyday use. I know I’ve got an itch. I guess I just want to keep making work that confounds me. I want to be confused, ignited, knocked down by my own work. I believe in messing with stereotypes, prodding the viewer to reassess. »

« Her subject matter continues to stir up controversy, because Joyce never skirts the painful matters inherent in racial and sexual stereotypes, Rather, she confronts them directly with powerful image rendered with exquisite technique and proffered with unflinchingly candid titles.
Her own African American heritage deeply influences both her point of view and her choice of media. As child Joyce Scott learned quilting, and beading from mother Elizabeth Scott. Joyce got her BFA from Maryland Institute and she pursued a graduate degree in Mexico at Institute de Allende where she lost herself in native crafts. After Mexico she continued her work study of indigenous crafts, including Native American beadwork, Navaho’s rug weaving and the quilt techniques of the Kuna people of Panama.
From all these travels were not merely a gathering of technical skills but a diversity of perspectives. This multiplicity continues to inform her work where Buddhist, Haitian voodou, and Victorian aesthetic references can come into play. »
