All art by Joshua Miels

These artworks are painted onto a wooden panel and then transfered onto a preprepared canvas. As the image is pressed & transferred onto the canvas only some of the paintings information is retained, this process can be done multiple times until the image is eventually lost. This technique can evoke both happiness and sorrow, as it reminds us that our memories are fleeting and cannot be preserved indefinitely. Nevertheless, it is precisely this fleeting nature that makes our present experiences so valuable. We must cherish each moment as it happens, without any assurance of what the future may hold.2 men embracing each other in a time of need. showing that that being vulnerable is a sign of power not weakness. Breaking down the stigma of mental illness. As a contemporary artist, Joshua's work sheds light on the vulnerability of individuals and their struggle to deceive the public about their real emotions. By capturing a man who may appear strong at first, he challenges the viewer to look closer. Once viewed through a different, perhaps more compassionate lens, the observer can start to detect their fragility.
