Joseph Atkinson works in a variety of media. By emphasising aesthetics, Atkinson seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events.Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.
His artworks sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning.
