Joss Heierli - Linktree
Developed during his residency at V.O Curations, Joss Heierli presents two new bodies of work, which continue his critical engagement with the history of abstract expressionism and mark-making.
The large works from the Amazon series are made through the act of removal of images painted with oil sticks directly onto the artist’s studio floor.
A series of collages, titled Palais de Dedication, are composed of fragments of notes or sketches that stopped serving a purpose or were deemed failed. Pieces of writing or drawings from notebooks, diaries, calendars and sketchbooks coincide with scraps of tape, paint or fabric, forming an accidental visual language.
