Joseph Taylor Golding – Featured Artist, September

2011/09/14 § 1 Comment

Joseph Taylor Golding is an American video artist. His recorded images and words, composed of found and original footage and sound, sometimes are like messages from an imagined future long gone cold, but they glimmer lightly with something that smells subtly of hope or perfect summer blackberries.  Joseph’s work is a thing of great discovery, beauty and endurance.
Joseph, in his own words:
artist statement for Unshod Quills:
 
Joseph Taylor Golding is an autistic visual artist living in the pacific northwest. A land of black sunlight. and smiling police men . He composes the moments of poetry in his everyday life With an eye of an angel dragged in hell joseph creates poetry and visual sculptures and short films and feature films in between twin collapsing suns joseph has never called anyone father or mother so he lacks the humanity needed to be a person. in his attempts to communicate via discarded images he feels like the old coins and archeologist finds with the faces of dead kings, their value as forgotten as himself. he places a new value on them. as he does himself. Joseph studied film at Evergreen in Portland and in Paris. Joseph is supported by his imaginary friend pete . joseph’s body is primarily consisting of water, 98.6

We will let Joseph’s work, video poetry on the themes of fire, America, somewhere never traveled, gladly beyond and rapture, speak now. We can’t hold it back any longer. Seldom do I comment on work published by our journal, as I like to allow the art and literature to speak for itself, but I comment now.
Thank you, Joseph. Please continue to do this work.
Anyone who might see this and be interested in learning more about Joseph, or in hearing from him, will please email me at dena @ haliterature dot com.
