Joshua W Murray is a fine art and freelance photographer, collagist, smuggler, musician, illustrator, designer, and genius by proximity residing in Saint Paul, MN. His current projects include researching the aesthetics of failure and how the beauty of digital and analog glitches express a new way of looking at progress.
I am a multidisciplinary artist often working with photography, collage, drawing, and music. My medium is varied but my approach to art making embraces metamodernist sensibilities. Metamodernism is the wholly fluid and fluctuating inclusion of everything from the ideological modernist movement to the cynical insincerity of postmodernism. I enjoy reassembling multiple disparate objects and images into new narratives and landscapes. This technique is a way to deconstruct the past, consider what has been learned, and then rebuild into a new aesthetic. There is value in examining change. There is wisdom in observing the aesthetic of failure.
