Tam Joseph: I Know What I See

Tam Joseph: I Know What I See


Four Corners Books

Bringing together paintings and sculptures from over 40 years of work, this is the first major publication to provide an extensive survey of the work of Dominica-born British artist Tam Joseph, whose wide-ranging career defies being pinned down to any one style or approach. His art takes him in many different directions. Some paintings reflect on his own history and the history of injustices faced by African Caribbean people in Britain, while other works draw inspiration from diverse sources such as cinema, music, sport, the natural world, landscape, portrait and the history of painting itself. Whatever his subject, Joseph employs his deep knowledge of paintings of the past to create work which invites viewers to consider those genres afresh.
