Josephs artwork and practice centers around his study into the historical, psychological and natural influences on the human condition.

Josephs paintings and drawings are created in series and begin as research projects with a unique set of rules the artist chooses to conceptualises his approach and to set up parameters around the development of the work. Joseph then bends and twists his research and practice and infuses it with codes and double meanings to include observations of personal experiences - to the viewer, these references remain vague and often unstated, yet act as 'authenticator' and diary for the artist.

Ultimately we are invited by the artist to explore the boundaries of the past and present and our relationship with history and nature.
