Opening Night :
11th October 2018
6:30pm - 8:30 pm
This exhibition explores Joseph's journey through racial abuse and acceptance to now celebrating his culture in today’s society. Showcasing playful paintings which are both abstract and figurative often experimenting with expressionistic portraits which are then disfigured and modified. Symbolism is used as a representation of themes running through Joseph’s experiences.
“The exhibition will stem from my life experience, what I have seen both bad and good, what I believe in and also what is really happening in our society now and addressing the issue through visuals“.
