Joseph Loughborough _ Notches

Anno Domini // the second coming of Art & Design is proud to present:

Joseph Loughborough solo exhibition

Joseph Loughborough’s third solo show with Anno Domini pushes his oeuvre into the realm of colour. Influenced by a fusion of Primitive art ,Colour-field painting and Stuckism, this new corpus of distorted characters and figures explores the notion of experience and naivety.

“Notches” take many forms for many reasons. They appear on the nose of a plane, the bedpost, the handle of an axe. They can be found engraved on the wall of a prison cell marking days or years incarcerated. They symbolize an accumulation of some kind. Over the period of a lifetime we could argue that our bodies develop their own lexicon of expression. We become greyed, wrinkled and scarred. We gain experience, we accumulate. We become marked.

In his new series he uses the notch as a motif to symbolically imbue the work with experience. In a particularly cathartic manner this is contrasted with his experiments into colour which he openly admits to being intimidated by. He uses the structure he is familiar with – The portrait – to engage and confront his naivety by fearlessly bathing these depictions in a provocative palette.

Joseph Loughborough, b. 1981, spent his formative years exploring the derelict boatyards and creeks of Portsmouth, on the south coast of the UK. After graduating from Portsmouth University he pursued interests in art, philosophy and skateboarding culture, living in London, Paris and currently Berlin, Germany.

"Notches" exhibition dates: March 2–April 14, 2018
