Joss Cole's work reflects his understanding of specific places and events, transforming the meaning of poetic source material into paintings. This exhibition consists of paintings dealing with three subject matters, poetic myth, debate/analysis, and images of old hats/old ideas, all linked by the idea of creative epiphany. Working in these varied subject matters, Joss investigates the way formal explorations can change and shift the symbolic meaning of representational imagery. By overlapping elements within the paintings, mediums, materials, wood, loose washes of watercolour, among other techniques, he attempts to create a collective atmosphere.
Joss graduated from Wimbledon College of Art and is the current recipient of the Chadwell Award 2011-2012.
