Everything we see in this world we see in sequence, a chain of events, a swell of pitch. Current. Drift. Commotion. Spanish motorcyclists tumbling through the air. Ships at sea. Waves crashing on sand. The living word is like the living being, pops wheezes coughs hiccups, the reality of muscle and skin leaving footprints on a beach.
Each imprint has a shape and a significance. A reality. There is significance in shape, shape in reality. The other dimension of our existence is an invisible mystery whose music is revealed in constellations of meat and coincidence. Fables, blisters, flint.
Joshua Kane believes that everyone is born with a complete “imagination, yet some are blinded by spite and cannot see the bigger picture.
Joshua Kane symbolizes the fundamental facelessness of contemporary man and depicts himself as living among millions of strangers whose face he does not even recognize. Joshua Kane trades his skin for handmade papers and is reduced to the voyeuristic gaze as he conveys his bleak message.
‘..IN SEEING THERE IS HATE, IN BEING SEEN, THERE IS ABHORANCE..’
The ideal of the face as a special skin, through which one’s heart and soul are communicated to others, is sharply contrasted with Joshua Kane’s brutal abstraction of THE FACES OF THE OTHERS, perceiving them as either enemy or an object of IMPERSONAL EROTICISM.
