Lives and works in Brooklyn, New York
The work shown is fragments from two bodies of work I haven made this year. The City of Rosebuds are all these abstracted figures dancing with roses, becoming roses, or enjoying roses. Its about reflecting on my time when I lived in Portland, OR, all the lovers and friends I made over the course of seven years. The other set of work that is shown is from a new series titled Memento Labyrinth. These settings are more surrealistic in nature. Its a depiction of how my brain organizes all the media I’ve consumed, from conversations to porn magazines. It's a labyrinth.

Hoseley is a Brooklyn based artist currently working on paintings but is a printmaker at heart. His work explores memory, history, and the archive. The history of all gay and queer things from past parties to protests to bathhouse architecture. He finds interest in things that didn’t have a long live or wasn’t able to be shown in some capacity. Hoseley enjoys the blurring of lines with works having abstract shapes, unknown spaces, or color fields, he does this so the viewer is caught off guard and transported into a new world.
