Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joshua Field (Born 27 October 1973) is an American artist known for narrative paintings which use iconic and psychological imagery to create complex sometimes mysterious scenarios. He exhibits his paintings in the United States and Europe. Many of Field's best-known artworks utilize the visual language of collage to bring a broad range of disparate images into a narrative scheme. His early work incorporated found objects and made use of popular imagery, referencing the transition period between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art when artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Larry Rivers used both lyrical brush strokes and popular imagery in their work. Later, Field's paintings developed a more personal symbolism in which certain characters or objects appear more frequently. His current work is deeply symbolic and often contains references to classical mythology in addition to extensive personal symbolism. Field lives and maintains a studio in North Adams, Massachusetts.show more
