Roach, Joshua

b. 1988
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and I completed my thesis in sculpture at the University of Manitoba. To me paint is a skin. It conceals my shortcoming and reveals my honesty. The structure it creates allows me the freedom to manipulate it. I I build paint up like I build a sculpture, allowing my naivety to play with the medium. Slowly the painting distorts as the relationship of forms, colours, and texture intermingle.
