I Know What I See is the first extensive survey of the work of Dominica-born British artist Tam Joseph (b. 1947). The book brings together paintings and sculptures from the 40+ year career of an artist whose art has taken many different directions but is grounded in a sensibility which revels in the connections between things, as well as the creative possibilities of human perception.
Some paintings reflect on his Joseph's own history and the history of injustices faced by African Caribbean people in Britain. Other works draw inspiration from diverse sources including cinema, music, and sport, as well as the natural world, and the history of painting itself. Whether his subject is landscape, portrait or history, Joseph employs his deep knowledge of paintings of the past to create work which invites viewers to consider these genres afresh.
Eddie Chambers’ insightful essay explores how Joseph’s independent spirit and boundless imagination offer a thrilling survey of a lifetime’s creative expression.
