Synopsis: In the art of Joel Sheesley domesticity flows from the interiors of houses into yards, neighborhoods, parks, and roadways. In this collection the reader encounters a journey through the landscape that is always marked with human presence. These paintings invite reflection as to how we are fitted to this world, how we have fit the world to ourselves, and how we are fit for one another within the world we know. The five essays on the artist are unsentimental and informatively critical while engaging and passionate.
