In an interview surrounding this show we conducted with the artist, he explains, “I reveal a secret desire or two as well as some new robots, female robots, childhood memories, feelings of isolation, and other things that have been interesting and/or bugging me lately.”

 

“I do like robots and donuts. People have their own idea of what they represent and I'm fine with that. It seems to me that all I'm really doing is interpreting what I see going on here on Earth, with a few exceptions. Sometimes I do use robots and donuts as metaphors, but mainly as suggestion.”

 

Joyner's 20 new oil paintings are an example of how fine art can gracefully carry the lighter subject matter of sweets and toys.
