Artist Creates Beautiful Paintings Based On Vintage Images To Merge The Past And Present

1

Portland-based artist Joshua Flint creates paintings that are based on vintage images curated from many sources, such as museum archives and charity shops, and then mixes them up to create new stories that fluctuate between the familiar and the unknown, the past and the present – allowing countless interpretations.

“There is a dynamic interplay between experience and interpretation,” says Flint about his work.

“What is remembered isn’t necessarily descriptive of the actual event. Once the experience has passed through our emotional filter we assign meaning to it, changing the actualities. My paintings explore that place in-between a direct translation and the abstract of emotion.”

Joshua adds: “I can see this person or place in a photograph but know nothing about what is going on beyond those paper borders. That ambiguity, between the seen and unseen, between the real and the imaginary, is where my paintings live.”
