Statement

All of my work begins with language as its material: the ink, the dirt, the paint, the practice of life laid bare upon the page. Everything changes as the material is bent to its new purpose. New potentials emerge as old habits are laid bare. The tear and the cut underpin every direction of my work but I undertake the journey of reading, specifically, to arrive at new beginnings. Text becomes mythology via light.

Biography

Joseph A. W. Quintela is a poet, artist, publisher, and art-organizer working at the fault lines emergent in the face of post-textual and post-productive modes of living. With a particular interest in material excess, systemic collapse, and generative revitalization, his practice harnesses a fluency in a variety of media including paint, light, books, text, and culinary ingredients. Solo exhibitions in New York have included Portrait of the Cast of You in Eye (Dumbo Sky, 2013) and FOOT | KNOTS (Project Space Envelope, 2012). He has organized exhibitions for Undercurrent Projects (Books Without Words, 2014), Terrazzo Art Projects (Se Cayo Todo, 2014), and the Brooklyn-based Smith&Jones. Ongoing displays of his work are housed at The Strand, Central Booking (LES), and Salinas Restaurant (Chelsea).
