I was raised by gypsies. True... in a sense. Born in 1971 I grew up going to art shows along the East Coast with my mother and father who was a traveling artist during the 60's, 70's and 80's, back when art festivals just started to form around the country. I ended up going to the University of Michigan, with delusions of becoming a doctor...it did not take long to come back to my true calling. I find the gypsy life still to be intriguing: I have lived in Vermont, Michigan, Oregon, Washington, Missouri, and now, North Carolina.
Guess I never grew up, art shows are still as mysterious and fulfilling as they ever were. I am a self-taught artist, I spent my childhood drawing and painting, soon sculpture became my obsession.

Years later, I'm gratefully still lost in art. With my wife Pam and our cat, Stevens, this is right where I should be.

About

Art is all there is

Josh Brooke Cote'
I work in many mediums, in 2D and 3D, from paper collage painting to wire sculpture to bronze...
I will be offering very limited edition fine giclee prints of my collage work here on Etsy!
Please stay tuned! More to follow!

Bronze sculpture is an exciting new departure for me. Working as a full time sculptor for the past twelve years, I have normally created art using only wire. 6 years ago, I began to introduce epoxy clay into my wire forms. This epoxy clay captured my imagination, and has led me to my current bronze obsession!

Going back to my beginnings:
I became interested in wire sculpture as it bridges both linear drawing and sculpture, the two and three dimensions. I create intricately woven wire sculptures using recycled aluminum, recycled copper or steel wire. With only needle-nosed pliers, innovative techniques developed by the artist are applied as the wire is painstakingly hand-manipulated, wrapped and woven to itself. Using negative space, combined with the linear nature of the wire, the finished work is much like a pen and ink drawing in sculptural form.

Similar to a gesture drawing, yet as a free standing sculpture, the manipulated wire captures the energy and life of the subject, there is movement and mystery. Wire sculpture is a bare and honest medium as nothing is hidden, all is revealed to the beholder.

Usually the raw metal wire is left in its natural achromatic state, but sometimes the wire is oxidized with a variety of acids to achieve unusual patinas. Every sculpture is unique and inimitable, impossible to replicate.

My work explores mixed media and wire as a flexible medium capable of expressing the unique space between realism and abstraction; where interpretation and our ability to create meaning is in flux.
