"kind of blue"
Joshua Saunders


  • Project Space 613 Allen Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

Joshua Saunders shows new work (collages, sculpture, images). Josh T Franco often writes his artist statements (an Austin art worlds secret no one cares about). The process begins when Joshua sends Josh a rambling email with images and some punctuation. Josh writes back with flourish and craftiness. This new work starts from found flashcards (shit, did he just tell a secret?). It is terrifying to respond to vocabulary cards with more word [sic]. So I am done. In flashcard spirit, the following (and title) are sampled from Joshua’s rambling email. (Is Josh lazy or just feeling blue?) Read these. See the show.

3 - 6 of these
40 x 60 ish
confusing object to image relationship
perfect / content-less / same time
blue implications
human emotional experience
question intent
upscaled / less benign / more cunning
who the fuck took these pictures
all my love.
