Amanda Elizabeth Joseph is an artist hailing from Fort Wwayne, Indiana, USA. There truly is a kind of disgusting beauty and revolting tenderness to Joseph’s paintings…nasty skin infections and herpes-like sores made of glittered sequins and ruby jewels. Kiss me now.
Joesph’s careful rendering of the imperfections of the skin (pimples, acne, skin blemishes and discoloration, etc.) is what adds that little cherry on top that successfully compliments the odd and colorful skin diseases that adorns the subjects’ skin in her series.
