Joe Webb at Jealous East Gallery
Artist Joe Webb returns to Jealous with 'Earthlings’, his much anticipated third solo exhibition at the gallery. The collection explores the human experience, examining our impact on the planet as well as looking far beyond into the awe-inspiring cosmos. His colourful and vibrant artworks challenge us to reflect on serious environmental and societal issues, often with an injection of dark humor. Delving deeper, he questions our perceptions of reality, contemplating our place and purpose in an infinite Universe.
Webb's artworks are made from images serendipitously found in second hand bookshops, cut out and rearranged to create simple but elegant hand-made collages. He works to a rule of juxtaposing two or three simple images to invent a new narrative, without the aid of computer manipulation. The new exhibition also features new large scale oil paintings, which he has developed from ideas taken from the original collages.
'Earthlings' features new original collages, rare and previously sold out editions as well as new large scale oil on linen paintings. This is the first time a collection of his paintings have been exhibited together in the UK.
