Soft and Memory-Laden Oil Paintings by Joshua Flint

The memory-laden oil paintings by Portland-based artist Joshua Flint. “There is a dynamic interplay between experience and interpretation,” says Flint about his work. “What is remembered isn’t necessarily descriptive of the actual event. Once the experience has passed through our emotional filter we assign meaning to it, changing the actualities. My paintings explore that place in-between a direct translation and the abstract of emotion.”

Flint has a current exhibition titled “The World Between” at Sumter County Gallery of Art in Sumter, South Carolina which continues until January 8, 2016. You can see more of his oil paintings and in-process sketches on his Instagram.
