b. 1978 Mansfield Ohio.
Joseph’s paintings are observation based recordings of the world around him. Painting in a figurative and still life genre, Joseph wants to look beyond the narrative inherent in these motifs to just see the beauty in things themselves. Drawing comic books as a young man first brought him to life drawing at 13, which expanded into oils at the Savannah College of art and Design, and continues today. Joseph currently lives and works in Portland Oregon, where his focus of painting has continued into making the paint itself, trying to gain further insight into what oil paint can offer.
