Bronx, NY, USA) I am engaged in the converging vectors of art and science, but receive added inspiration from kabbalah teachings & meditation and try to create visual forms (in paintings on canvas but also video art) conducive to mystical experience and self-transformation. I like to regard myself as an "emerging" artist creating art wi... [more]

(Image: Joshhua Ray, 2020 Vision Inverted, 2012 , Acrylic on Canvas Screen Print , 18" X 24" X 2.5" ; © Joshhua Ray Interprise 2012)   Joshhua Ray (b. Granada Hills, CA) Art is the truth we perhaps will never see, the expression of what could be and the evidence that no one wishes to see. Art is personal yet lies to us, comforts and then betrays us. Art is whatever you see it to be and will then define the blind from the visionary. I have made the choice to paint, document and use visual ex... [more]

Hudak layers acrylic paint, photographs, graphite and colored pencils to create visual narratives that are fueled by the recycled material of our cu... [more]

Events double back to devour themselves, momentum overtakes strategy, tectonic plates meet and collide. The paintings reflect my experiences of great western landscapes the shock of unabsorbed events. The slick paint resembles oil spills and h... [more]
