Mixed technique on wood, with pop art flair!
Born from popular culture, Joseph's work is both a playful celebration of his superficial progenitor and a penetrating commentary on the era of consumerism. These retro-looking paintings have their origins in comics, advertising, even capsules, because the artist celebrates the triumph of the pop universe in all its forms.
The glossy finish of his work is reminiscent of the enamelled billboards so characteristic of early 20th century, a finish that perfectly suits this ideal and larger than life universe. While we look at these overly beautiful women, these people always smiling, we see in the smooth and relentless surface like the characters it exposes, a dim reflection of oneself, a pale imitation of imitation: the life which imitates the art that imitates life.
If Joseph is graphically inspired by the consumerist society, we also find this influence in the sha^pe of his paintings: each piece is made up of several panels attached in such a way that, according to his whims, we can change their place, deconstruct them, even add some. Joseph pushes Pop Art to its logical conclusion: an art form where the consumer takes his place next to the artist in the creative process.
