About The Artwork

This piece was from a series titled "Silhouette Selves" which started when I was living in San Francisco. I put a piece of tracing paper over a printout of some photographs my partner Sarah had taken of me and filled my silhouette with line drawings. Originally this series was digital and the drawing was scanned and then colored and manipulated in photoshop. A couple of years later I put the drawing onto a silkscreen and printed a very limited run of prints. Each one was printed onto different background which had been painted with spray paint and some metallic gold acrylic paint. This version of "Twisted" was the best one and the original piece is no longer available. Conceptually this series of self portraits was an early foray into trying to turn my body (or persona) into a work of art. In this created dimension of color and line drawings, I am merely a shape blending into the gates (which were located in front of some small body of water near my group studio in Alameda, California at the time). Using my image as subject matter to convey some sense of my personal psychology and mental state continues to be one of the primary themes of my practice.

Joshua Gabriel is a New York based artist, musician, and graphic designer whose work combines drawing, video projection, murals, music, and performance. jG updates the aesthetic of psychedelia to create a kind of hybrid space in which a mythologized version of his own ego, constructed of variable disposable personae, is at the center. Drawing on his experiences as a visual artist and musical performer in the New York underground, his work leans towards spectacle, drawing on sacred objects and readymades, projecting onto walls, and combining the abstract and figurative in a riot of color. Born and raised in Philadelphia, jG received his BFA from the Tyler School of Art, and his MFA from Brooklyn College. Joshua Gabriel has created large scale murals throughout New York City and has exhibited and performed in the United States.
