Joseph's paintings are candid records of all the thoughts, actions, and time he invested in them. Take one of his works and really take time tracing each mark. Try to count all the different ways the artist sprayed, painted, and dripped paint over it, try to imagine the wild movements he made with his whole body wrestling the canvas. And it's not just paint, too. All of Joseph's works are mixed-media, allowing the surface to build up a thickness with one material on another.
