Joshua Coffy: Sing Out, For I Am Weary

Joshua Coffy: Sing Out, For I Am Weary

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 tell of the Cyclops, a race of giants with a singular eye. This year I have been having vision troubles with my left eye. It was entirely blind for most of this painting series and the Cyclops became a central figure on my list."
