As most of you know, Gallerie M features up and coming artists. Our next exhibit is an intriguing look into the mind of a young woman. Introducing, Samantha Joseph.
Samantha Joseph is a recent BFA graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design where she studied Drawing under Paul and Polly Caster. She has had several group exhibitions in Milwaukee, including the most recent, Human, at the Perspectives Gallery. While she considers her work to be drawing, she often incorporates paint into her pieces, believing that drawing is more accurately defined as a mentality of process rather than a form or media choice.
Her most recent work consists almost exclusively of self-portraits, about which she states, “this is the most focused I have ever been in my career, and I would be crazy to let myself drift off, even if some days I have no idea why I am still looking at my face in a mirror.” For Joseph, working in drawing is about balancing painful challenges with the simple beauty of having a good time.
Stay tuned for the arrival date of Joseph’s show and come visit Gallerie M in May or any day!
