Lives and works in Ridgewood, NY
Ridgewood based artist Joe Greer has exhibited work in numerous shows throughout Europe and the United States, as well as recent participation in a curatorial capacity with Automatic Wag. Greer creates assemblages out of found objects, warped and woven together to often anthropomorphic ends. In some cases he uses familiar materials to create unfamiliar forms, while in others the opposite is true. Out of disparate parts – be they organic, synthetic, or refuse of entirely unidentifiable origin – Greer creates compositions that are unsettlingly human while retaining their contextual and structural ambiguity. With resultant sculptures evoking the sublime eeriness of the Brothers Quay, Greer's work raises similar questions of intentionality versus decay.
