JOSEPH PICCILLO

Joseph Piccillo’s meticulous charcoal and graphite drawings and paintings reveal an exquisite draftsmanship tempered by emotional sensitivity. Piccillo presents an action-based assemblage of images and symbols by combining dancers, horses, divers, and sometimes mysterious and arbitrarily placed figures producing a surreal effect.  His compositional logic, for example, contrasts the gracefully elongated ballerinas to the compressed and invigorated musculature of horses and divers.  Piccillo's horse series details anatomical studies from varying angles of the horse as "supreme beast" while also  reflecting a classic homage to their heroism.  In short, Piccillo's charcoal and graphite drawings reveal the mind of a master draftsman at work.
