Joseph de la Hoyde, “A body of Desire’s Exhibition”
Sydney Art School invites you to the debut solo exhibition of Hornsby Art Prize Finalist Joseph de la Hoyde, “A body of Desire’s Exhibition” featuring a collection of his best photographs, writing and curiosities. Joseph’s work is melancholic and ethereal, examining themes relating to dreams, the imagination, and the juxtaposition of beauty and death.
A Body of Desire is an art project that explores the dilemmas of the modern psyche. The new generation is a generation that is more spiritually, emotionally and politically aware than ever before. It’s an experimental art project that explores the imagination as a vehicle for enlightenment.
