This monograph on British-born painter Steve Joy offers an appreciation of the luminous and spiritual qualities of his work. Steve Joy has lived and painted on three continents. Although his abstract works reflect the history and culture of each of the countries in which he has dwelled, they are unified by universal themes of religious devotion and existentialism; his distinctive use of gold leaf and wax; and a vibrant sense of geometry and proportion. Presented in reverse chronological order – a factor which affords a unique understanding of Joy’s artistic development – these glowing reproductions are accompanied by photographs of the artist’s studio and places of inspiration in Mexico, New York, Morocco, France, Spain, Norway, Italy, India and Japan. The book includes an interview with the artist and insightful essays discussing the influence of medieval icon painting and Byzantine culture on Joy’s work.
