Josh’s work seeks the inner thoughts which we do not share in order to avoid protest. After developing a strong connection with his heritage through archiving historic photographs and other family relics, Josh continued to explore the vernacular, allowing him to form relationships in a space in which he feels visible.
‘Silence’ aims to extricate a sense of belonging within a dysfunctional family.
The work expresses an essence of feeling invisible to those who are closest to us. To those who are as yet unaware.
b. 1996, England, UK.
From a young age, art has given me a sense of empowerment.
Growing up in school I always felt most connected within my creative studies.
Art gave me a space to think, control and create whatever I wanted, when I wanted.
This sense of control allowed me to use visual language as my own voice, when I felt I could not communicate verbally.
I am currently on my journey through MA studies at Plymouth College of Art.
