• • • Artist Bio
Joe Velez has been a visual artist for almost 20 years. Although his main focus has been painting and drawing, he has recently widened his scope to include theatrical sound design, videography and Photography.
‘VIGIL’ is his first exhibition of photographs since taking up the art form. It includes prints from both digital and vintage film cameras. Joe views photography as an extention of his other work, yet as the antithesis of it. Whereas a painting is an accumulation of the time spent creating it, a photograph depicts an instant fraction of a second. Recorded either electronically or chemically, not by hand, but (to put it somewhat romantically) by the eye itself.
