This February, the Asheville Area Arts Council presents “My Name is a Verb,” the works of Joshua Spiceland at the ARTERY.
Joshua Spiceland is a WNC native, coming from Boone and graduating from UNCA in 2008 with a degree in Studio Art. His current body of work to be shown at the ARTERY February 2013 incorporates figurative analogies into layered geometric organic abstractions. Color and shape are used intuitively to create rhythm intended to suggest music, which is a large influence on Spiceland’s creative process. Universal simple geometric elements are combined and repeated, executed freehand, and reflected. Some of the themes explored in this show are life and death, creation, connection/separation, wealth, and attraction. The large and small format acrylic/ mixed media paintings will punctuate a full immersion space, as Spiceland will paint behind and between the paintings on the walls. Joshua is a member of the Asheville Mural Project and worked on the project under I-240 at Lexington Street.
“My Name is a Verb” will be on display at The ARTERY February 7 through March 5, 2013
The Opening Reception will be held on Friday, February 8, 2013 from 6:00-9:00pm.
