a body of desire

   an art concept inspired by the unravelling of the collective soul   

Joseph de la Hoyde is a Sydney based multi-media artist whose work evokes a sense of the ethereal, underpinning the delicate and transitory nature of mortality and juxtaposing it with the lingering permeance of it. His photography, writing and collaged curiosity work examines themes surrounding mortality, desire and sexuality. Joseph was a finalist in the Hornsby Art Prize in 2019 and has since been published in international art journal Unvael Journal. In 2020, Joseph hosted his first solo exhibition where Hornsby Shire Councillor Janelle McIntosh praised his ‘striking’ collection of ethereal and haunting work. Joseph has been completing commission work for private collectors as well as working towards a second exhibition. His first poetry collection is available for purchase on his website.
