The oil paintings of Joshua Flint (b. 1977, Merced, California) look like depictions of memories when one tries too hard to access the faded thoughts worn corners, blurred faces, and transposed scenes that don’t quite make sense.
“There is a dynamic interplay between experience and interpretation,” says Flint about his work. “What is remembered isn’t necessarily descriptive of the actual event. Once the experience has passed through our emotional filter we assign meaning to it, changing the actualities. My paintings explore that place in-between a direct translation and the abstract of emotion.”
