'Nervous Substance' at Sarabande offered an insight into the development of Joshua Beaty’s work. A showcase of current and archival studies on paper, this body of work showed grotesque physiognomies that investigate merit and mediocrity; seduction and repulsion; life and death.
Joshua Beaty is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. Since graduating from the MA Fashion Programme at Central St Martin's, Joshua has worked with Julie Verhoeven, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY and Dover Street Market London. His work has been photographed for various publications including Dazed & Confused, 10 Magazine and by Wolfgang Tillmans for Another Man.
Fascinated by the monstrosity of over-interpretation, his works are an investigation of seduction and repulsion; pleasure and pain; life and death.
