'Intervals' is a selection of work by Lou Joseph produced since the birth of his son Gabe in 2017. Using recycled vinyl cut to 26 x 36 inch pieces, the artist worked on batches of paintings in his home studio, the process of working on the paintings in layers fit into the times in between child care, family time, employment and housework. This at times erratic process was only exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic and working from home. While not a literal, day-by-day documentation of this time, the accumulated works (this exhibition includes 35 of 150 paintings) relay a sense of the fun, lack of sleep, mental health struggles, worry over the pandemic/the united states/climate change/etc and personal growth during this time.
Lou Joseph (b.1975) is a Baltimore artist working in painting, printmaking and installation. He is a project manager for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and also director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Baltimore. He lives in the Radnor-Winston neighborhood with his wife Miriam, son Gabe and cats Dexter and Sadie.
