About

"Dinner Bell in the Woods" Oil Painting 72"x96" inch by Joshua Hagler Oil on linen 72 x 96 in. 2017 ARTIST BIO: Joshua Hagler lived and worked in San Francisco and then Los Angeles for fifteen years before moving to rural New Mexico in 2018 as a grant recipient of the year-long Roswell Artist in Residence Program. He was born at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho in 1979 and is a first-generation college graduate with a visual communications degree from the University of Arizona in Tucson. Having not attended an art school or received an MFA, Hagler identifies as a working class artist. Self-directed research and travel has underpinned Hagler’s career and is essential to how the artist integrates creative influences with his life experience. While most of his early work responded directly to a difficult past within a variety of religious groups and their unspoken implications for the artist and his family, the later work has sought to understand religion in a deeper way. To Hagler’s mind, one finds the seeds of religion in every facet of culture, even, and, sometimes especially, among the so-called secular realms. Religion, for Hagler, is not approached in the pejorative but in a state of acceptance that perhaps it’s through the religious structures inherent in our shared languages and cultures that we access what makes us most human, for better and for worse. The artist’s 2019 solo exhibition at Unit London, “Chimera,” presented a body of new paintings that at-tempt to dig beneath various forms of loud political language, including censorship, for clues on how the ubiquity of groupthink informs populist world views on both ends of the spectrum. The artist, in practice, hopes to work into the “noise” to exhume something both Personal and Other in the physical manner in which the work is made. 2018 saw two museum shows at the Brand Library and Art Center in Los Angeles and the Roswell Muse-um and Art Center in New Mexico entitled “The River Lethe” and “Love Letters to the Poorly Regarded” respectively. He has exhibited paintings, sculpture, video, and animation in galleries and museums in North and South America, Europe, and Australia including a long list of solo exhibitions. Reviews and features about the work, as well as his own poems and essays, have appeared in a variety of publi-cations and media outlets in the U.S. and other parts of the world.
