Published on the occasion of the exhibition Joseph/Brinker HYBRIDS at Francis M. Naumann Fine Arts, NY

In 2019 Joseph collaborated with her partner of 25 years Robert Brinker in an exhibition called Hybrids at the Francis M. Naumann Gallery in New York City. The artists also showed their individual work. Although their paintings appear quite different at first encounter, the works have many of the same concerns. They both use collage and the computer as a starting point to work out their initial ideas. They also share a love of process and color that includes the layering and exploration of materials. The Hybrids contrast figuration and abstraction in ways that could not have been accomplished individually.
