Peter Joseph, Reflections
25 April - 13 June 2015

Peter Joseph is one of the finest colourists painting today. In his earlier, more geometrically constructed works, each colour, seen alone or as one of a pair, is distinguished by its rarity, its luminosity, by its almost romantic capacity to stimulate the senses and to arouse emotions. Eminently retinal, his painting, without belonging to any particular current, but sharing some affinities with minimalism and American colour-field, puts forward its own field of expansion and expression. That is to say a form of free chromatic lyricism, sadly too little appreciated during these decades of conceptualist domination. It carries, with as much delicacy as fervour, a wave of freshness and fragrance that affects eye and mind.
