Joshua Flint – Between Familiar And Unknown

Super amazing!

The artworks by the American artist Joshua Flint hide a lot of research, that come from many sources as art history, vintage shops and social media platforms. Below an artist statement about his way to work:

My work is based on images curated from many sources such as digitized museum archives, vintage shops, and social media platforms. The paintings fluctuate between the familiar and the unknown while simultaneously including the past and present. By rearranging the hierarchy of elements the paintings become fictions that allow countless interpretations. Layered into works are references to liminality, ecological issues, neuroscience, psychological states, and the history of painting, among others.

The images sourced from out-of-date materials hold a special fascination. Much like observing the ruins of an old, grand building or a church in a state of decay, the characters and objects that populate his paintings are employed to create a sense of ephemerality, imbuing the work with a kind of fascination and disquiet, over the passage of time. Used in this way they serve as reminders that cutting edge trends and novelty will evolve into new iterations or be abandoned altogether. Using these sources for my paintings allows a certain distance to reinterpret as I see fit. I can see this person or place in a photograph but know nothing about what is going on beyond those paper borders. That ambiguity, between the seen and unseen, between the real and the imaginary, is where my paintings live.

Etsy Shop – New Works 014

New Collection!

I am into experimenting a lot in these last months, so I thought to share the final results with you. These pieces are part of a series called “Raw Cuts“, available on my Etsy store. Below a little intro about it.

About the Series
Raw Cuts Series is born to give space to my numerous vintage and found paper scraps collected in years. I wanted to give justice to all these leftovers in my personal way, creating small format collages full of bold colours. I also decided to choose a particular surface for these art pieces, a 150 gsm handmade paper made from recycled cotton rag. I believe that this kind of paper goes well with the final concept of this art project.
