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.
Joseph de la Hoyde is a multimedia artist whose visceral and ethereal work explores the juxtaposition of beauty and death – the tearing point between dreams and hopelessness, imagination and destruction. His first solo exhibition comes after being selected as a finalist in the Hornsby Art Prize in which his work ‘Melancholy’ was showcased. The exhibition features a collection of his photography, writing and curiosities at the Sydney Art School, Hornsby.
