artist statement

Interested in the versatile role that imagery plays in contemporary art, Joshua’s work is a collection of gestures that guide a conceptual endeavor that explores the relationship between the physical and the virtual, the photograph and the sculpture. Through installation, exploration of materials, and non-traditional ways of image making, Joshua wants to challenge the understanding of both, the mediums and the viewers.
