Visiting Artist Joshua Abelow In Conversation says
The Dikeou Collection is pleased to welcome artist Joshua Abelow to Denver for a free public conversation at Dikeou Collection, 1615 California St, Suite 515, on Thursday May 26. Doors open at 6:30pm with talk beginning at 7pm.

Joshua Abelow (American, b. 1976) works in large and small-scale oil painting, printmaking, pencil drawings on paper, photography, and poetry. The artist uses abstraction and figuration in his paintings and drawings to explore the psychology and psychosis of the artist. Abelow received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and his MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He currently lives and works in Harris, New York where he operates Freddy, a curatorial project space within an old church

Abelow's works are evocative of his interest in autobiographical storytelling. The artist has said that he uses "figuration and geometric abstraction to piece together different narratives that are interconnected." His themes also resonate in his writing, each reflecting the techniques of the Art Brut and CoBrA movements. Abelow's grouping of oil paintings, Call Me Abstract (Self-Portrait at Age 36) is on view at Dikeou Collection and his project, "Fourteen Pages," appeared in issue 24 of zingmagazine.
