(British, b. 1990)
Reexamining notions of Abstract Expressionism Josh experiments with action and gesture, void and space, mark making and colour to give the viewer a sensorial experience.
In his latest series of works, gesture becomes a state of being, reserved and contained or fluid and expansive, while his masterful use of colour interplays between depth and flatness.
Josh uses painting as a tool to explore the meanderings of form and thought. Within his paintings there can be elements that can be seen as stylistic or figural but he chooses not to define them.
Josh is currently studying at the Royal Academy Schools in London.
“Essentially I like the idea that any figure I come up with has its own identity and its own associations allowing the space to move beyond any extension of my thought.” - J. Pye
