JOSEPH LORUSSO

My philosophy on painting generally revolves around the idea that as part of the creative process, the viewer plays an integral role. I try to give the viewer a starting point, albeit sometimes a very detailed one. The work serves as a trigger. The viewer completes the narrative, one colored by his own experience. For me, this is the fun part about the end result of my work. At exhibition openings I may have people offer many interpretations of the same painting.

I have heard other artists say that they would paint even if they where a hermit or if no one was watching. In my approach, this just doesn’t make sense. My work is about others watching. It’s about people reflecting their experiences into what I have given them to start.
