Joshua Backus makes improvisational paintings of perceptual phenomena that engage the tension between physical encounter and apprehension of image. Recent work applies iridescent and interference colors to varying surfaces to create paintings that respond to the light and space they are viewed within.
Joshua Backus is a conceptual painter who lives and works in Chicago. He holds a BFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from the University of Chicago.
