Paintings

Joseph Holston’s paintings are both cubi-abstract and expressionist, with careful attention to color, form, line and composition. His subjects are always recognizable, and his work celebrates life in all of its phases. He does not tell a complete story in his paintings, but rather suggests a narrative, experience, or drama, and invites the viewer to become involved. His paintings are characterized by simple, uncluttered shapes which reduce and refine subjects to basic forms and figures. Holston’s goal is for viewers to become so interwoven in the art that the line between where the viewer ends and the arts begins no longer exists.
