Joshua Coffy: Night of the Fireflies

Joshua Coffy: Night of the Fireflies


About this series, Josh says, "I am a believer in myth, legends and stories. The power of these entities has drawn me closer since I was a boy. Growing up in rural Ohio I heard stories of fascinating local legends and even believe to have had my own encounter with Sasquatch. Since then I have always had an interest in cryptids and their stories. Approaching this series I was pulled even higher into their orbit by doing the research and viewing countless images of each creature. Sharing this adventure with Dianne Hoffman and her sense of assemblage absolutely helped me to piece together their mysteries. I feel like a detective tracking down each beast, only to find new questions at every turn. Here I present my findings thus far.

Legends exist in stories and memories. This painting is about my memories of the great summers of my childhood. Standing barefoot in the grass catching fireflies and tree frogs. Staying up way too late like some night owl...Summer. It may never be as good as it was when I was a kid."
