Joseph P Gerges

In his most recent work, Los Angeles based Egyptian American artist Joseph Paul Gerges, employs an anthropomorphic association to animals as a symbolic parable for human suffrage, pain, vulnerability, and survival. These frozen moments exile the romantic extolling in its place the poignant realities of life and mortality. By creating an altarpiece to the simultaneous confrontation and seduction of these human experiences, Gerges crafts a visual language for our collective humanness.
