Biography from a third party submitted on 09/28/2008:
Joshua Demain is an emerging artist who intends to take landscape painting in new directions.  After earning his Master of Fine Arts at Montclair University, he established studios in Alaska and Ontario, Canada.  He has exhibited at Axis Gallery, NYC; The Girdwood Center for Visual Arts, Alaska; and the Salvador Dalí Museum, St. Petersburg, FL.  He has also taught at the Anchorage Museum of History and Art.

Josh Demain regards his work as a quiet confrontation of perceptions.  His paintings are about the human tendency to understand and accept some things people see more easily than we see other things.  Buildings are made by human beings for human beings, and so are easily interpreted and accepted by our senses.  The sky, in its awe-inspiring beauty and power, is beyond conscious comprehension.  

The artist enjoys placing the concrete against the abstract; the knowable against the unknowable; the mundane against the profound.  His landscapes are usually constructed with low horizon lines, thus creating immense skies and small landscapes. 

The purpose in these depictions, according to Demain, is to show the struggle, and also the beauty, of the dual nature of mankind:  the intellectual in opposition to the instinctual; the beauty and tragedy that dance constantly through each person’s life journey; and the overwhelming presence of “reality” versus the fragile stability of self. 

In short, his works are meant to be poetic meditations on the human condition, disguised within the time-honored tradition of landscape painting.
