Nathan Slate Joseph, a New York based artist has been an integral member of the New York art scene for more than 50 years. Joseph blurs the boundaries between painting and sculpture. Finding himself residing in Sag Harbor, “BOATYARDS” is the artist’s journey back to his past - the ocean and boats reminiscent of his childhood on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
Using a unique process he developed while living in Mexico, Joseph collects chosen, found material and oxidizes it with natural pigment, exposing it to the elements to produce rich saturated color and varied textures. “BOATYARDS” advances Joseph’s journey into modern abstraction and offers a re-imagination of the forms he grew to know.
Nathan Slate Joseph was awarded an Art in Architecture Award from the American Institute of Architects in 2003 and was featured in La Bienniale di Venezia in 2015. He has collaborated with the renowned architect Adam Tihany on numerous public projects. His work is installed at The Breakers (Palm Beach); The Four Seasons (Abu Dhabi); and the Dan Eilat Hotel (Eilat, Israel).
His paintings have been acquired by the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum (New Brunswick, New Jersey); and the Art in Embassies Program, Washington, DC, for United States embassies in Cyprus, Mexico and Turkey. Private collectors include artist John Chamberlain, singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, philanthropist and art collector Beth Rudin De Woody and renowned architect Adam Tihany.
Joseph currently lives and works in Sag Harbor, NY and recently opened a studio in Palm Beach. His art is represented by Keyes Fine Art, located on 53 Main Street in Sag Harbor, next door to the American Hotel.
