About This Work
“I love painting outdoors in Dundas and I hope you can see why from this painting. I did it in one of my favourite secret spots—it’s a backroad with no outlet; very shady (important when painting in the summer heat); and has lovely neighbours who don’t mind when I edge onto their property as the sun shifts. When I paint in out-of-the-way places, I see more. Rather than “things,” I see dappled light, half-structures, flashes of sky. Everything breaks into slabs of colour--hot, cool, brilliant, soft, fluttering. If this is your backyard, yes, I did modify your garage door. Forgive me. I needed a vertical line that pointed to your chimney. I’m always thinking about connections in my paintings, to help the viewer move around in it!”



Jody Joseph is a painter who has lived and worked in Dundas, Ontario for over 20 years. She is a well-known sight in her community, painting on her portable easel in Dundas’ many neighbourhoods and in the surrounding countryside.



Joseph has had many solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the US and Italy. In 2022, her work was included in The Bigger Picture at the Art Gallery of Hamilton and she had a solo exhibition of paintings at Earls Court Gallery, also in Hamilton. Joseph had early art training in her native Chicago, and later became a student of the Abstract Expressionist painter Nicolas Carone at the school he founded in Italy. 



Joseph has taught painting, drawing and collage at DVSA and at art schools in Italy for over 20 years. Joseph has also curated scores of exhibitions, and is currently the curator of the TBA Artspace at Dundas’ Carnegie Gallery.



More of Joseph’s work, including her paintings of Dundas houses and neighbourhoods, can be seen online at the link below or at Earl’s Court Gallery, which represents her in the Hamilton area.
