Public Art

Colour, and nothing but colour, flat and unmodulated, floods the attention. While the colours are very simple this body of work has light, fresh qualities about it.

I uses technology to create structured installations of light that have great poetic beauty. Light, colour and randomness are the connecting themes in this body of work. Informed and inspired by the ‘St Ives’ school of paintings, I have created a dynamic set of work that uses light and geometry driven by Flash computer software that randomly changes the image supported by an atmospheric soundtrack.

This body of work involves digital images that are generated using computer code, which randomly places a preconceived set of images into the picture frame, depending on a set of rules. This then creates experimental abstractions that fuse technology with the visual arts.

In this work I explore the power of abstract shape through meticulous geometry, working with form, colour, space and graphic shapes to create work that takes the classic ‘St Ives’ abstraction look into a contemporary visual form. Joe treats colour as an independent form, utilising the architectural plane on which it sits and the space around it to create new illusions of space and colour.
