Joe Piscopia builds 3D shapes with 2D mediums. Informed by strongly contrasted lighting, Joe’s gradations bring every object, concept, or pattern to life in abstract forms. Shapes and colors document moments of thought and emotion in Joe’s life. Starting with a thought, a bird, or a single word, he intuitively explores from there into a realm of soft geometry.
Joe Piscopia has a growing discipline as an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New
York. Having earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at The School of Visual Arts he
has defined and refined a particular practice using ambiguous and inorganic forms.
Much can be made from a practice of drawing and this is for the most part an
underlying aspect of his paintings. Whether using amorphous shapes or geometric forms
one can almost guarantee these paintings have evolved from a premise of sketches
While working at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for some time he has explored and developed his own practice continually producing paintings and drawings that have been exhibited throughout galleries in New York City, New Jersey and Collar Works Gallery at Troy, New York. Along with shows for GroundFloor Gallery’s “ Priority Mail “ show and their “ Deep Blue See “ show in tandem with @PCAA Auction on Artsy. Other exhibits include “ Et Tu Brut “ at the Andrew Edlin Gallery and Flatfiles “ Art on The Wall “ along with their “ 2021 “ exhibition.
