I really enjoyed “Silence” series by the UK artist Josh Huxham. The simple juxtaposition of two vintage photos give an exquisite surreal final result.
This is how the artist describes this body of works:
Josh’s work seeks the inner thoughts which we do not share in order to avoid protest. After developing a strong connection with his heritage through archiving historic photographs and other family relics, Josh continued to explore the vernacular, allowing him to form relationships in a space in which he feels visible.
‘Silence’ aims to extricate a sense of belonging within a dysfunctional family. The work expresses an essence of feeling invisible to those who are closest to us. To those who are as yet unaware.
