Joseph Church received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. He works as a freelance preparator and art installer in Chicago.

The paintings in this series of work are very much planned out and designed. Most of my artistic decisions involving color, shape and composition are made and finalized early on in my process. The paintings are crisp and linear with large areas of flat color saturating the entire canvas. Each line is carefully hand drawn and each shape is carved out by the line. The deliberate and precise style in which I work makes my imagery appear as if it has been programmed or machined.
