Joseph is one of the artists who has shown work at Cheeseburn since the Sculpture Gardens began in 2015. He lives in a rural village near Newcastle where he has built a studio to enable the creation of large-scale works for exhibition and to commission.
The exhibition at the Stables Gallery, Cheeceburn has been kindly supported as part of the Great Northumberland 2018 programme which has enabled Joseph to work with North East dancers to develop the work.
Joseph said: ‘In bringing together digital technology and ancient metallurgical processes I am trying to decipher what we are becoming, to distil and freeze a sense of our humanity in this moment, being so filtered and defined by the digital.’
Josephs work is well known in the region with a number of major commissions in the North East and he is currently producing his largest work ‘Bianca’ for a theatre in Cornwall. He combines traditional sculpture casting and construction techniques with live motion capture technology and 3D scanning to produce sculpture where the human body is often combined or confronted with geometric and technological forms.
