Joshua Fields

Lives and works North Adams (USA)

In the same way that poetic language gains meaning through distillation, imagery becomes more potent when extracted from the collective consciousness and re-contextualized. It is in isolation that these iconic and archetypal images become part of the poem, imbued with supplementary meaning. Using this visual language, Joshua's recent work investigates the increasing isolation of the individual and the resulting expansion of the personal universe, the internal mythologies of interpreted history and the collective dream-scape.

Born in 1973 (Massachussets, USA)
BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore
Foundation years at Pinellas County Center for the Arts, St Petersburg, Florida
He has exhibited nationally and internationally, from Chelsea in New York City to Berlin, Germany.
