How Objects Wear Things
For How Objects Wear Things, Joshua Veasey attempts to understand the overall experience of the city and those who inhabit it. He interprets the constant shift of the urban landscape by combining image and material that explore ideas of identity. Through the use of photographic documentation, he encounters and records objects, landmarks and people that become the framework for his process. He deconstructs, pieces, assembles, and fashions discarded materials together with these images of temporal encounters to contemplate contemporary society.
About the Artist
Joshua Veasey is an interdisciplinary artist, working primarily in painting, sculpture, photography and installation. His recent output is focused on dissecting the socioeconomic structure of the urban landscape. Documentation is a key factor in his process of object making, using image as a means to signify relationships between mobility, work, labor and the implications that further build those identities in society.
Veasey received a BFA in Sculpture from New World School of the Arts. His work has been shown throughout Florida, including most recent exhibitions at Oolite Arts, Mindy Solomon Gallery, Gucci-Vuitton and the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation. He currently lives and works in Miami, FL.
