'The World Is Still At War, But We're Still Dancing' is a limited edition print on Kodak Metallic C-Type. The artwork plays to a sequel to my previous artwork 'When The World Was At War, We Just Kept Dancing. This statement photography includes mid century imagery such as the iconic Swiss Miss house, primary in the architectural history of mid century design. I wanted this work to allow viewers to think about the state of the world and how it has changed since part 1 of my image series. It is about how the world is currently representative in mirroring its state of modern affairs including pollution, climate change, politics, equality. The self portrait (artist standing centre) allows me to act as a vessel for people to put themselves in the picture. I am almost frozen in time and reflecting on the world I want to live in and creating a dreamscape around myself of beauty amongst the turmoil. The orange vibrant tones including the detail of orange drink in my hands help link colour ranges to the burning palm trees and contrasts to the warm juicy green tones in the photo. The kodak metallic paper has a rich metallic base. The colours have a reflective, metallic and 3-dimensional feel. High mid-tones & highlights add luminosity & iridescence making it one of my favourite papers to print on. Looking closely at the work creates beautiful silvery, 3d like colour tones.

Joshua Benmore HONEST ESCAPISM fine art paintings and new media pieces. A romanticized exploration of life’s natural happiness and challenges. Depicting an illustrated portrayal of organic, sensitive, thoughts and narratives alongside pop inflicted, vibrant imagery. I aim to look into the realness of human nature, emotions and indulgences whether they be deep rooted messages or light hearted, humorous pieces. Themes of my work include the state of the world, politics, equality and consumerism whilst hinting at popular iconography and symbols. My most recent work has begun to explore in greater depth my feelings of just living in this world, growing up, mental health and the challenges this can bring. You can find hints and narrative of my personal and relatable experience with these subjects scattered throughout my work. As someone who suffers from various invisible illnesses, I find myself as an artist intrigued by bringing out beauty from what may be seen as the opposite. Colour filled pieces, act as a cheery facade of scaffolding over artworks holding sincere messages to its viewers. I like to juxtapose and subvert my themes not always in a completely literal sense so that viewers minds can pull out a personal meaning to themselves and question their own thoughts and stories. Vibrant scenes and landscapes in my work sometimes require deeper consideration in their underlying uneasiness or joyous exterior. Exploring sense of self, belonging and nostalgia, messages of strength and positivity creep their way into my work, scratched into paint layers. Signs of encouragement - like a glimmer of sunshine hold the pieces up. Titles of my artwork such as "Flowers will grow again", "the sun will come back" and "the light through the dark" are prime examples. I bring flowers into my work as I find they are a nurturing and natural comfort to grow over my artwork and they mimic the human in many ways. Consumer culture and branding is another theme, which I love to pair in my work including the idea of the search for happiness in life alongside the 'American Dream' and inner peace. I want people to look at my work and feel a moment, a memory, a comforting nostalgia. Using colours and subjects that feel like they are somewhat of a fleeting memory or sudden, unfiltered thought.
