Joe lives and works from Fife in Scotland, Joe's paintings are created in a unique and original style. His themes are primarily representational cityscapes and profile faces. Joe has now included other subjects and themes into his collection including human form, portraits and religious representations.
Inspired by subjects that exude emotion and that he has either felt, observed or is passionate about. He uses expressive brushwork and palette techniques to create and represent feeling and depth. His artwork comes in the form of acrylic/oil on canvas.
Many influences have helped Joe shape vision of the world that was to inform a passion to create, not just an image, but an experience, something to heal and enrich, something that may make a difference.
With a deeper creative current that pulls Joe towards his particular subjects :- age and expression in the creative realm; a sense of something more, portraits of faces not necessarily wanting to be seen but to be felt and expressed beyond the world of tangible realities. Cityscapes of warmth and beauty.
An expression of places, love, age and joy.
“... by creating an emotion from a subject is what makes it all worthwhile”.
