"The exhibition includes comic book covers, drawings and watercolors from the series, "The Adventures of Pussy Marshmallow," completed during the artist's residencies at the American Academy in Rome during 2003 and 2004.

Joseph's body of work has explored issues of sexuality, gender, domesticity and power with an absurdist's dark sense of humor. The artist's subjects are strong contemporary women, women who take chances, women who dare to audaciously break the rules in the game of the sexes, and fantasies about them. The work has included paintings, drawings and sculptures of bodies that interrogate the categories of the "feminine", including human-animal hybrids, cyborgs, mutants and circus freaks."
