About Joshua


People are forever fascinating. I am compelled to paint them. My pursuits are driven by my curiosities about the world around me; about our nature, about our character, about our ambitions, both individually and collectively.

The work I do explores people and place. Sometimes these elements collide, other times they remain solitary; leaving the viewer with a sense of how we see ourselves and how others view us. The figurative work I do allows both myself and the viewer to stop time for a while and focus on the lifetime of events, in all of our lives, that often remain undocumented.

Painting an environment or exploring a figure gives me insight I wouldn’t receive in any other way. It allows me to have multiple dialogues at the same time. One with the subject matter, one with the paint, and one with myself.

Your work has to rate as some of the best work ever created both past and present.

I feel like you've captured more than just figures with your use of light, almost like you've revealed an indication of spirit.

It is the sunlight that draws me in and makes me think I am looking at reality. I love your artwork.

The light in these paintings is exquisite! Very impressive. Had a hard time deciding which were my favorites, urban scenes, still life or figures... still can't decide. Did love the lemon!

Strokes that are so luscious and juicy that I can almost hear the loaded brush against the substrate. The landscapes seem to record moments that one would take for granted as they walked down an innocuous street or shopped, preoccupied, in a mall. Rich light and highlights bouncing, reflecting and twinkling throughout. Representational as they are they pull you into another plane, very much like cognitive dreaming.
Though the portraits an figure work are just as painterly as the landscapes, emotionally I didn't feel as carried away. They are direct and recognizable, but lack the stimulus for fantasy.
