JOSHUA BRENNAN

Joshua Brennan uses many historical, technical and conceptual considerations to inform the visual forms in his art. With a penchant for abstraction that distorts into meta-abstraction, he often employs multiple approaches at once, combining disparate ideas, images and materials in a single work - blending traditional with unconventional to create complicated, densely layered imagery. His approach is open-ended and pluralistic in nature. He moves and acts with fluidity to embrace the fertile ground of the fleeting moment, focusing on humble bits of information contained within. There are no restrictions to the happenings that draw his attention. Joshua believes all things worthwhile are elusive and indefinable until focus is placed on direct awareness, an act of living in the present moment.
