Joe Diggs Bio
"My work has always assisted me with life on Micah’s Pond, a beautiful property once owned by my grandfather, then my father, now me. I concentrate on painting and ﬁnding the exact color the exact shape to say what I’m trying to say. I allow myself to act as a medium and concentrate on the images that come through on the canvas. Sometimes I have plans for the painting and strategically make it happen. Other times I approach the canvas on a pure emotional level by letting the paint ﬂow free almost like a child would. To me painting is magic; images appear out of nothing, blobs of color transform themselves to a new meaning. Creating art gives me the opportunity to share my visual experiences. I identify with the power of the image and rerepresent it to my audience. I want my work to invoke thoughts and emotions that will take the viewer on a visual journey.
I paint from observation, but allow my art the freedom to be spontaneous, which spawns new work. Just as importantly, by allowing impromptu action, I omit the desire to control everything in the process. This grants me a voyeuristic space to operate. Being intensely in control without force, I react to chance intuitively, and reﬂect my ﬁndings to my audience. Being a voyeur and a medium wrapped into one.
I was born in Croix Chapeau, France to a military family that has supported my artistic and athletic desires. After graduating from Southeastern Massachusetts University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art Painting with a need for a more international education, I gained employment as a Flight Attendant with US Airways. Recently I have completed a Masters of Fine Art Degree at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
