Assistant Professor, Joseph Holsapple’s current work explores the subject of still life painting as a convergence of memory, imagination, and perception. He paints toys and common household items that together evoke the domesticity of childhood. The objects are painted both from observation and memory. The spaces they inhabit are wholly invented and change continually as he works, allowing the image to slowly move towards increasing clarity. The painting retains evidence of this fluid process, evoking the transience and intangibility of passing time.
