How Objects Wear Things
How Objects Wear Things is the first solo exhibition of Miami-based artist Joshua Veasey. Incorporating photography, fiber, and assemblage, this series of new large-scale collage works draws from the radically transitional landscape of Miami; its unmonumental landmarks and casual readymades created by chance, utility and survival. Veasey joins this documentary practice with his ongoing fascination with garments and deconstructing fashion – incorporating clothing that has been pulled apart, abstracted, embellished and ultimately flattened into two-dimensional compositions. With these transformations, Veasey explores politics of identity, authenticity, and temporality.
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.
