Ready to Hang
I started with a perfect Golden Rectangle and created this piece by drilling holes into a wood board and then covering the resulting pattern in white epoxy resin. The delicate floral design contrasts with the heaviness of the construction.
The plywood is mounted on a sturdy frame, and is ready to hang immediately
Curator's Note: While at first this piece almost appear like crisp circular cut outs in a sheet of paper, we realize that the artist actually used a drill and wood surface to create this minimal floral design.
Biography I have lived and worked abroad for the last 10 years, mostly in Russia, but also some in Morocco. I just moved back to the states to live with my two teenage boys. During the last years in Moscow, I began painting and now paint full time. I’m a stay-at-home dad, and work out of my home studio. I try to do yoga and meditate regularly. The kids and I spend our vacations either kiteboarding or skiing. I was born in Columbia, MO in 1970. I have a BA in Russian Literature from Amherst College and an MBA from the University of Chicago. I’ve worked for the last 20 years as a mortgage bond trader (Bank of America) and management consultant (BCG, McKinsey.) My last job was Partner and Head of Strategy Consulting in Russia at KPMG. Joshua's work was recently featured at the Fountain Fair, hosted by Mana Contemporary in Chicago.
