About

Today, in an age of easy mechanical reproduction, there is still something of the magical in the representation of an animal by hand. A part of the power of Joseph Piccillo's work lies in his ability to dazzle us with sheer technical mastery." Regan Upshaw Known primarily for his work depicting horses, Joseph Piccillo also finds intrigue in the human form. Utilizing a grid format his charcoal and graphite portraits are organized as "tiles" resembling photographs from old magazines or images from an era past. Piccillo's odd placement of each panel adds an atmosphere, which is distinctly of our time. He illustrates a wide range of emotions in each portrait through his mastery of chiaroscuro, from scorn and anger to anxiety to melancholy, creating the tension and balance that makes each separate compartment a part of an impeccably unified composition. Joseph Piccillo has been exhibiting his work for thirty years in New York, across the United States and throughout Europe. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections such as IBM, Microsoft, Time, Inc., Dow-Jones, Brooklyn Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
