Joe Cazares

As a contemporary artist, my primary focus is:

The execution and manipulation of concepts of meaning, expression and the depiction of these intertwined states through a conceptualized/abstract visual language in which I constantly endeavor to redefine a personal dialectics of the art-making process.

In the studio I experiment with paintings and drawings that are the result of organic shapes, textures, images, and forms placed against each other like a puzzle. Often these experiments act as a point of departure that will inevitably lead to new avenues of contention and dissonance.
