The art of Joe Felber has developed as a significant practice over a lifetime spent living and working in cities and major art centres in Europe and America. Here in Adelaide we see the benefits of this time-honoured practice layered with the artist’s longstanding concerns.
Joe’s title piece in this exhibition is a result of constant change, mapping the rhythms with the disruption of the world in mind. Multiple records of atmospheric pressure might also be echoed in human emotional turbulence. Joe mimics the process - adding, subtracting, leaving it open to reflect the scientific evidence and the layered and integrated maps of an unsettled world.
