Joshua Jensen-Nagle
Portraits of Decadence

May 2–31, 2007
Parts Gallery
1150 Queen St E

Joshua Jensen-Nagle’s work is driven by the
artist’s
perceptions of and reactions to cultural
phenomena,
particularly, in Portraits of Decadence,
themes
of degradation. In past works, this theme has been
evidenced in intimately titled images of washed
out rural, industrial and urban landscapes, images
where either the air or the photographic negative
– or both – seem to be in a state of decay along
with the objects pictured. Jensen-Nagle has also
investigated
societal and environmental deterioration
in oil paint–altered prints of anonymous,
despairing, post-Edenic animalia. Jensen-Nagle’s
signature technique of combining resin with
photographic
prints further reinforces this aesthetic.
