Joseph begins each of his abstract artworks by thinking deeply. He sifts through the imagery in his mind seeking a composition. Sometimes Joseph arrives at a clear visual goal, while often he embarks on a journey of creative discovery through trial and error. “It takes a certain amount of courage, and also commitment, to push through to a final resolution,” the artist says of his process. “There are many moments in-between that require faith and patience.” Bold and colorful from a distance, Joseph’s work also reveals intricate details when examined up close. Shapes and structures are executed with fine precision amid swirling globs of paint. As a result, the work offers the viewer a multifaceted experience exploring color and form.
