About

JWebster_crop bw.jpg

As the son of a contemporary abstract painter from New York’s Hudson Valley, Joshua has been involved with art and artists throughout his life. Joshua’s own work as an artist, however, began later in life, after he had already established himself as an architect and graphic designer. Drawing on his professional background and inspired by the work of the mid-century color field artists, Joshua’s work explores the interplay of form, color, and texture on the canvas. He aims to create novel visual experiences that evoke excitement and emotion for their viewers without straying from the language of abstraction. Joshua has collaborated and worked with Blair Voltz Clarke on numerous projects since 2008, including exhibitions at Manhattan House during Armory Week. Joshua’s work has been published in Lonny Magazine, New York Magazine and he was recently featured in Holly Hollingsworth Phillips's blog The English Room. He currently lives and works in Jersey City.
