Subliminal Iconography

I've had many a conversation with a fellow artist about how we humans learn from visual icons and how little it takes for our mind to recognize familiar shapes and work them into a context or train-of-though equation. Joshua Marsh teases us with his simple and colorful compositions of everyday objects and for just a moment we naively/innocently enjoy the "abstractions" before suddenly recognizing the familiar shape. These have the feel of old fashioned after-dinner jokes with friends.
