"Bo Joseph considers his abstract works to be closer to found objects than mixed-media paintings. They begin as a series of spliced-together photos, culled from the artist’s expansive archive, that Joseph deconstructs, builds up, and deconstructs again in an unusual, labor-intensive process."

Artist Reception: Saturday, September 12, 12-2 pm

McClain Gallery is pleased to present our premier exhibition for Fall 2015, Bo Joseph: Souvenirs from Nowhere. This is the New York-based artist's second solo exhibition at McClain Gallery and will highlight his new works on paper. The work ranges from medium to large-scale drawings, including a new series of oil pastel, acrylic and tempera works with punctured, stencil-like cut-outs. Joseph draws upon a myriad of cultural references and shared histories, reimagining and decontextualizing the familiar into abstract forms.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a forthcoming catalog with an essay by artist and critic Matthew Weinstein.
