Joshua Raffell is a London based artist.
Joshua makes work that explores identity and sexualisation. It brings in mental state and the edge of pleasure / disgust. It is erotic and humorous. Sewn with a twisted stitch.
The overt vulgarity allows the collapse of restriction; it gives a new view and the lightening joy of freedom. A moment’s existentialism. You are invited to bring your own perspective.
In the words of Jerry Saltz: Cluster Fuck Aesthetics.
The work is textiles juxtaposed with found everyday objects. All media contains a homely appearance, values and use. Discarded textiles are layered and contorted.
His work is often likened to outsider art.
